Webcast Description: This presentation will discuss the afferent visual defects and visuomotor concerns encountered when diagnosing and treating patients suffering from Traumatic brain injury (TBI). TBI leads to a wide array of vision problems, often too subtle for patients to clearly articulate. Patients often voice only their frustration with newly acquired difficulties reading, driving or using computers. When a patient complains, the caregiver needs to know just a few simple evaluations which help identify critical debilitating neuro-visual problems. These problems usually exist even when the routine eye exam appears perfectly normal. In addition, the presentation will address the value of recognizing the protean effects of TBI on patients and managing those problems via a team approach. A hands-on demonstration of tools for evaluating patients will be included.

Learning Objectives:

1. Recognize the various visuomotor problems encountered by concussion patients

2. Understand the variability of presentation and duration of symptoms

3. Analyze the whole patient’s situation to best develop of practical treatment plan

4. Identify patient needs to enable a concussion team to get involved and work together

5. Demonstrate understanding of modes of therapy for patients with visuomotor difficulties after TBI
