Neuro-Optometric Review for Traumatic Brain Injury Patient

There is a painting hanging at the front of our office that has a tremendous amount of meaning and tells the story of what we see in so many of our patients. So much so, that we may even see tears from the viewer from time to time.

It happened this week. One of our newer patients who has experienced a brain injury left her evaluation with a sense of overwhelm. And I told her the story of the painting.

The man was in a dark place in his life and had been referred to our practice for treatment. As many of our clients can attest, he committed to weekly sessions with the goal of practicing activities each week. When he finished his therapy he proclaimed through his painting that he saw light in his life. And The Vision Development Team had opened his heart and helped him see the world as a brighter happier place. He had learned, through therapy, about hope and success.

We think that our practice provides that for our patients and their families. We have seen many tears and we work hard to ensure that tears of fear and discontent become tears of hope and light and encouragement. And as I explained this story to our patient with the brain injury, tears filled her eyes as she whispered to her husband "that is what I'm looking for."
