Course Description

The TBI Seminaris for practitioners wishing to gain a better understanding of how to best manage these complicated, complex and challenging cases in optometric practice.

Attendees will learn how to diagnose, prescribe, and treat these patients using a behavioral and integrative model. Participants will learn about how brain injuries,whether from stroke, motor vehicle accidents or sports injury including concussion,affect the brain, the body and the mind. The various areas that are affected,including balance, vestibular, auditory, visual, sensory and motor systems will be presented within an intersensory model. How to diagnose and treat specific visual impacts including ocular health, oculomotor, accommodative, binocular, visual field, attention, and memory will be discussed and how it affects posture, balance, cognitive function, visual motor and auditory visual integration and activities for daily living. Treatment modalities include the use of our optometric tools, lenses, prisms, occlusion, tints, optometric visual rehabilitation, optometric phototherapy and more.

Case reports of various types and severities of injuries are discussed as well as their collaboration with other practitioners.

Finally, participants will learn best practices for successfully working with these patients and the other professionals who care for them and how to provide ongoing, supportive care.

This course is suitable for both new practitioners as well as established practitioners. Vision therapists will also gain a working knowledge for the therapy room.
