Many people who have experienced a head injury have visual symptoms. Intermittent blurry or double vision are very common and can interfere with the ability to return to school, work and life in general. People who experience a vision problem after injury often slip through the cracks because it seems that there are larger issues to address. Recognizing that headaches and dizziness could be routed in damage to the parts of the brain that control eye movements and visual convergence can get you help sooner!
Even a “mild” bump on the head can cause lasting symptoms and require rehabilitation. You don’t have to have lost consciousness or have required medical attention in order to experience vision issues after a hit to the head.
