Caring for Patients With Brain Injury

A “silent epidemic.” That’s how traumatic brain injury (TBI) was described in the 1990s. Today, with conservative estimates of 2.8 million Americans suffering a TBI every year and accounting for 10% of Americans with disabilities, it’s hardly silent anymore. From sports-related concussion to military TBI, it’s better recognized and often covered in the lay media. It’s also more prevalent in optometric practice. Approximately 50% of the brain’s neural circuitry is dedicated to vision, and 75% of TBI patients will experience visual symptoms. Given the strong prevalence and impact on vision, optometrists should be familiar with the basics of TBI and its management.
