Vision rehabilitation principles apply broadly regardless of causes of problems – the same equipment needs monitoring, tuning and repair. In presenting a course on vision rehab, we are happy to apply our focus to areas that are particular interest to you. Not all tools and techniques will apply to all cases, all conditions.

Use the form below to let us know if you’d like us to cover any topic in particular. You can be as specific or as vague as you like, from ‘Do you recommend Irlen lenses?’ to ‘What do you do about visual effects of Parkinsonism?’

Please note that we will only answer questions from Vision Rehabilitation Roadshow participants.

Questions:

  • Spot patching for dysconjugate gaze & timeframe guidelines for reassessment/followup, when to consider lens
  • I work primarily with post-concussed adults and I am interested to know if there is a hierarchy used for vision treatment. i.e. should the person have a certain mastery of spacial awareness/proprioception before starting far vision tracking or convergence? Or should your convergence be at a certain distance before starting saccade training? Or can you start treatment in all areas that you identify as having deficiencies in.
  • Could you please give advice on how to properly assess and treat for common post stroke vision issues such as: diplopia, visual field cuts in adults.Also, could you comment on where to start with assessing when someone has suffered bilateral strokes affecting vision. I have seen one person recently that has had multiterritorial strokes and presents as cortically visually impaired. How best to help someone like this. I work in inpatient (Adult) stroke rehabilitation so any focus on visual deficits post stroke would be greatly appreciated.
  • how to approach assessment, explanation, and intervention (compensation or remediation) of someone with monocular diplopia post adult TBI. considerations, differential diagnoses, interdisciplinary consults?…etc.
  • I am primarily with pediatrics, but hope to get into more adults. I am hoping to come away with some protocols or strategies of how to progress a client in their oculomotor training…or how best to “start” when there is a lot going on. Looks like we will get tons of ideas! Can’t wait. General “visual attention” is a huge issue with many of my clients. Also, I’ve been using DEM and scoring on the computer, but would like to understand more about the ratio and what it means. So many questions. Looking forward to meeting both of you.
  • Can you review diplopia tests and the Parks-Bielschowsky three step test if appropriate please. Please also talk about bilateral eye involvement in adults resulting in double vision and treatment for that.
  • Could you please spend a tiny bit of time tomorrow reviewing exactly how to do sector patching and to comment on its use for diplopia post stroke and if you would use it also for neglect many thanks for this course. (NP, and thanks: Look at Bangerter Foils to start. We can start the discussion but this is really not a 15 min thing. We’ll give it a try.)
