A recent study at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia showed 50% of adolescents after concussion had problems with eye teaming, focusing or tracking that made returning to school or sports more difficult.

When visual symptoms persist, even if other symptoms such as dizziness or poor balance have resolved, visual therapy, also referred to as neuro-optometric rehabilitation, can be very effective.
