A Vision Clinic is an important component to a comprehensive rehabilitation program for Acquired Brain Injury. It allows for the early assessment and treatment of a number of issues that can impact the patient's physical, cognitive and functional rehabilitation. Early assessment of visual problems after TBI allows for removal or minimization of barriers to progress. Key components to a successful Vision Clinic are effective communication between teammembers, family and patient, as well as appropriate followup. The authors feel that this is a necessary part of any comprehensive Brain Injury Rehabilitation program.
