Vision is more than 20/20. It’s also our brain’s ability to gather information with our eyes and to process the information we see. Our brain and eyes work together to help us think, move, and make sense of the world around us. Because of the close relationship between the brain and vision, many people experience significant vision problems after a brain injury. These visual deficits can interfere with recovery which is why vision therapy is an important part of our clients' overall rehabilitation.
