A recently published article determined the prevalence of visual diagnoses after concussion in adolescents.  The authors evaluated 100 patients between 11 and 17 years of age presenting to the Concussion Program at the Children’s Hospital of Pennsylvania.

Drs. Gallaway and Master presented the results of their research at the SECO (Southeast Congress of Optometry) meeting last week.

” 69 %  of children with concussion had one or more of these visual deficits: convergence insufficiency, accommodative insufficiency or infacility, and oculomotor dysfunction.”  

“With more evidence, better evidence of the impact of vision therapy, we can make a tremendous difference in our patient’s lives.” 

Listen to Drs. Michael Gallaway and Christina Master discuss their research in these short videos.
