- Outline post-concussion vision symptoms. Differentiate what is normal and what is abnormal as well as what is eye-related vs visual pathway-related.
- 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.
- Describe signs and symptoms of vestibular-oculomotor symptoms, the utility of screening, and impact on concussion recovery.
- Review the expected timeline for resolution of symptoms. Discuss what needs to be referred, when and to which type of provider.
