Traumatic Brain Injury can lead to Disorder of Vision and Binocular Problems
Do you or one of your relatives have an traumatic brain injury, like concussion, whiplash, stroke etc.? It could be a bike accident, a fall down the staircase or a traffic accident. If so, be aware of any visual disturbances and headache due to the vision. A traumatic brain injury can cause major binocular vision problems
The vision has many complicated connections all over the brain, why even imminent minor injuries can affect vision and binocular vision. The injuries might be “visible” as a squint or a missing visual field or “invisible” as uncoordinated eye movements, eyes which no more are able to turn inwards or problems with the so called vestibular-ocular system ( balance-eye muscle cooperation).
Quite often the “visible” problems only are discovered. Therefore, it is essential with a full investigation of the vision. Up to 60% of the patients with traumatic brain injury do have affected vision.
