Visual Rehabiliation
About a year ago, I was first diagnosed with homonymous hemianopia on my left eye. My left vision was completely obstructed. I was having problems with mobility and keep bumping into objects or people on the side of my visual field defect. The only way to prevent mishaps were to turn my whole body and eyes all the way to the left to check out the surroundings. When I read I am unable to comprehend what was read because the printed words always disappeared mid sentences.
 
I visited an Eye Specialist to seek help for my condition. I was told repeatedly that nothing can be done to improve my visual loss. However, knowing that this era of advanced medical technology have made most critical illnesses treatable, I refused to give up. So I went home and Google-d various articles about my condition. I read that some patients with homonymous hemianopia in the United States had successfully found a non-surgical rehabilitation program Neuro-Vision Therapy then I found Sun Time Vision Specialist, Mr Stanley and his team.
 
On top of vision therapy program, Mr Stanley also offered Visual Field Expansion System as a way to treat my problem. He fitted me with a special type of optical glasses which helped improve my daily life. I am able to move freely. I no longer bump into objects. I could read normally without the need to double-check what I have read. My eyes are less tired. 
 
Most important of all, because of the fundamental requirements of my job, I realized I can respond quickly now as my vision is better than before. I highly recommend this vision therapy for anyone who have problems with their vision.

GOOD VISUAL SKILLS -- GOOD VISION

Good visual skills are necessary for efficient information processing. When processing visual information is difficult, one may "try harder," straining without even knowing it because the effort is subconscious. If the visual system is inefficient, every task can seem difficult, using more energy than required. Visual skills affected by Traumatic Brain Injury include:

  • Tracking:  the ability of the eye to move smoothly across a printed page or while following a moving object.
  • Fixation: quickly and accurately locating and inspecting a series of stationary objects, such as words while reading.
  • Focus Change: looking quickly from far to near and back without blur.
  • Depth perception: judging relative distances of objects - how far or near they are.
  • Peripheral vision: monitoring and interpreting what is happening in the surrounding field of vision
  • Binocularity: using both eyes together as a team - smoothly, equally and accurately.
  • Maintaining attention: keeping focused on a particular activity while interference, such as noise, is present.
  • Visualization: accurately picturing images in the "mind's eye," eye retaining and storing them for future recall.
  • Near vision acuity: clearly, seeing, inspecting, identifying and understanding objects viewed within arm's length.
  • Distance acuity: clearly seeing, inspecting, identifying and understanding objects viewed at a distance.
  • Vision perception: understanding what is seen.
