Learning Objectives:

  1. Outline post-concussion vision symptoms. Differentiate what is normal and what is abnormal as well as what is eye-related vs visual pathway-related.
  2. Understand how visual symptoms may impact returning to work/activities of daily living and how visual symptoms may be misdiagnosed as other conditions including cognitive dysfunction, post-traumatic headache, dizziness, and anxiety.
  3. Describe signs and symptoms of vestibular-oculomotor symptoms, the utility of screening, and impact on concussion recovery.
  4. Review the expected timeline for resolution of symptoms.  Discuss what needs to be referred, when and to which type of provider.

Includes 1 ACBIS CEU.
