Professionals

Disturbances of various visual systems manifest with many symptoms and/or behaviors. Patients who have been diagnosed with strokes, seizures, autism, brain injury, genetic diseases, processing problems or neuro-degenerative diseases may have subtle visual system dysfunctions. Neuro-optometric rehabilitation addresses those dysfunctions.


20/20 isn’t enough. Changing input into the eyes changes brain functions, which in turn affects body systems.

All body systems are connected and interdependent.

Neuro-optometric rehabilitation assesses the ability to adapt to changes in the environment, while emphasizing perceptual awareness and attention used in executive functions.

NORA has prepared a checklist to determine whether a referral for a neuro-optometric rehabilitation assessment is warranted.

REFERRAL CHECKLIST

NORA has prepared a checklist to assist rehabilitation professionals (doctors, therapists,
counselors, etc.) in determining the appropriateness of referring clients for neuro-optometric
rehabilitation and treatment.

  • The treatment plan improves specific acquired vision dysfunctions determined by standardized diagnostic criteria. Treatment regimens encompass medically necessary non-compensatory lenses and prisms with and without occlusion and other appropriate rehabilitation. Behavioral observations during therapy sessions or medical examination, in-depth interviews and screening will provide information to rehabilitation professionals about potential visual and neuro-motor dysfunction, Following is a list of client symptoms and/or behaviors that may be reported or observed. If these symptoms are present, the client may be in the Post Trauma Vision Syndrome and/or the Visual Midline Shift Syndrome and should be referred for neuro-optometric rehabilitation.
