Vision Screening

Deficits to the visual system following brain injury are far more common than previously thought. Rarely experienced as such, they can undermine a person's recovery. While the requirements of states vary, in order to drive safely it is necessary to see clearly and have a full field of vision. A rehabilitative optometric evaluation should be included in preparation for your driving evaluation.

Persons in the metropolitan New York area are encouraged to contact the Head Trauma Vision Rehabilitation Unit at the University Optometric Center (33 W. 42nd St., New York, NY 10036 or call 212 780-4961).

If there is any possibility that you could benefit from specialized rehabilitative optometric care, seek it out in your own community, for example through the Neuro-optometric Rehabilitation Association.
