Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
Vision can be compromised as a result of concussions, brain injury, or other trauma to the nervous system. Studies have shown that 90% of TBI patients experience some form of a vision disruption. Vision therapy can effectively treat the visual consequences of brain trauma such as double vision, light sensitivity, headaches with visually demanding tasks, focusing problems, reading or comprehension difficulties, motion sensitivity, trouble with balancing, or trouble with driving. As an eye doctor with experience in neuro-optometric rehabilitation, Dr. Westcott has gained specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of vision problems caused by TBIs. Our office has successfully helped hundreds of children, teenagers, and adults who have suffered from traumatic brain injuries, concussions, and neurological disorders. We understand the difficulties associated with acquired or traumatic brain injuries, both physical and emotional, and work diligently with our patients to ensure their comfort in our office and see the most success possible.Because every patient’s needs are different, we ask that patients who have had a traumatic brain injury complete our new patient paperwork prior to scheduling. This allows Dr. Westcott to review your needs and ensure he is able to help you to the best of his ability. Our staff is happy to answer any questions you may have about our office or the paperwork either over the phone or through email
