Common Vision Problems after a Traumatic Brain Injury

The vision problems you may notice after a traumatic brain injury depends on the injury and the location of the injury. A key problem with diagnosing a problem with your vision is the lack of proper medical evaluations. Soldiers and others who may face head injuries do not always report the injuries to their doctor. They may overlook a concussion because they did not lose consciousness.

Vision problems usually relate directly to difficulty seeing clearly. It may also impact the sensitivity of their eyes. They may notice that it becomes difficult to see in bright light or they do not see colors clearly. Blurred vision or difficulty reading may occur in some individuals. 

Signs of Vision Loss after Head Injury

The signs of vision loss after head injury vary. Each person has unique experiences and changes to their vision based on the specific area of the brain and eyes that may face injuries. Common signs of visual change include:

  • Blurred vision
  • Changes to color vision or a loss of color vision
  • Poor balance and posture
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Difficulty reading
  • Double vision
  • Headaches, particularly when focusing
  • Aching eyes or tired eyes
  • Problems with concentration
  • Loss of memory

You do not want to overlook changes to your vision. By working with our eye doctor, you address problems associated with vision loss.

Testimonial

"Dr. Sapossnek is an excellent optometrist. She has my complete trust. She is so thorough in her exams and includes parents in conversation and education, so I know and understand all the facets of my children's vision. All of the above [in the Patient Satisfaction Survey are] EXCELLENT, no need to elaborate. I feel fortunate to have found Dr. Sapossnek and am glad all of us can go to her-both for my child with vision therapy needs, daughter and I with glasses, and son who needs neither."
