Did you know? A concussion, even a minor one, can cause changes in vision and visual processing.

A concussion often causes changes to vision and to visual processing. Most of these changes are not detected through an exam with your child’s primary care physician or emergency room physician. While it is extremely important for your child to be seen by a primary care physician or emergency room physician, it is also critical to be seen by a pediatric eye doctor after experiencing a concussion. Following a concussion, children often experience slight changes in vision and/ or perception which can cause headaches, fatigue, changes in visual acuity, and changes in the way the eyes take in and process information (learning).
