Today, we have a eye-health related question to answer for you all.

Q: Do concussions affect vision?

A: Vision is quite significantly affected by a concussion. In some, any visual dysfunction may resolve in a short period of time, while in other cases may be ongoing for weeks or even months. Symptoms of visual issues following head trauma can include headaches, eye pain, focusing, dizziness and focusing issues.

If you are, or know an athlete which suffers from persistent concussions, it is imperative that they undergo an eye screening to determine if any visual issues are present.

If a screening does present any issues, in many cases, these are highly treatable.
