Abstract

Date Presented 04/06/19

Visual symptoms sustained after a concussion impact occupational performance and return to activity. Evidence within OT is limited regarding current concussion-related vision disorder evaluation, referrals, and treatment. Data in this study suggest inconsistencies in practice patterns, with influences on care being years of practice and continuing education. These findings indicate a need for standardization of care regarding concussion-related vision disorders in OT.
