Strokes and Vision: How Neuro-Optometry Can Help
Strokes (cerebrovascular accidents) can lead to various visual impairments due to brain damage. About 60% of stroke survivors develop visual problems, such as double vision, visual field loss, eye movement abnormalities, and sensitivity to light.
Neuro-optometrists like Dr. Colette Whiting and Dr. Sandra Gillis-Kennedy specialize in evaluating and treating post-stroke visual deficits. Through neuro-optometric rehabilitation, they help patients recover visual function, memory, and balance while reducing symptoms like blurriness and dizziness. Neuro-optometry promotes neuroplasticity to establish new brain pathways and aid in stroke recovery.
