Our brains are incredibly elastic, allowing them to rewire and retrain themselves after suffering from an injury. Neuro-optometry is a specialized field of optometry a specialized field of optometry which works to actively retrain and reprogram the visual processing we rely on to properly interact and interpret the world around us.
Neuro-optometric rehab uses a customized combination of visual exercises, specialized lenses, and targeted visual stimuli—often including of digital aids—to retrain the patient’s brain to process visual input properly. At The Health League, Dr. Cameron McCrodan or Dr. Scott Irvine will create a treatment plan based on your individual vision conditions and medical background. Neuro-optometric rehabilitation is an important component of the rehabilitative process and is essential to reclaiming full day-to-day vision functionality.
The Health League and Opto-mization are sister clinics and closley with one another co-manage cases.
