The systems that receive blue light are common areas that are damaged after a concussion or whiplash injury. Some patients can develop extreme sensitivity to light (and sometimes sound) when these areas are not working optimally. A comprehensive neurological evaluation is recommended if you are having light sensitivity or eye strain related to a concussion or even classic migraine headaches behind or around your eyes.
The infrared eye tracking technology used in this study is also part of the diagnostic equipment used at Oculus Brain Centers. If you are an athlete, from peewee to professional levels, who’s sport requires visual tracking (what sport doesn’t?!), call us today to schedule an evaluation of your oculomotor system.
Vertigo and dizziness are debilitating conditions that can render people incapacitated and hopeless. If you don’t know what’s causing these symptoms, it can be quite scary to have an attack. Our patients describe their symptoms as feeling off-balance, unsteady, lightheaded, room spinning, they are spinning, being pushed, on a rollercoaster ride or rocking on a boat.
Diaschisis is a key concept in neurological evaluation and, ultimately, recovery. Diaschisis, which translates to “split throughout”, is a term used to describe downstream dysfunction of an upstream problem. Generalized brain stimulation may not be the most helpful for rebuilding a specific area of the brain that is damaged.
