Neurovision Rehabilitation

​​​​​​​Neuro-Vision Rehabilitation is an area that is not well known by the general public and even many medical professionals

Vision problems are often overlooked during the initial treatment of a brain injury and in some cases, symptoms may not be present until some time following the injury. If you are noticing any changes in your vision following a concussion or some other head trauma, don’t ignore them. It is important to determine the cause of the vision change. Early diagnosis can help lead to the appropriate treatment.

Below are some common vision problems that may occur following brain injury or other medical conditions such as a stroke.

  • Blurred Vision or Double Vision

  • Loss of Peripheral Vision

  • Headaches

  • Eye Fatigue

  • Eye Turn

  • Concentration/Attention Difficulties

  • Difficulty or Fatigue with reading

  • Sensitivity to light and sound

  • Dizziness / Nausea / Disorientation

  • Balance Problems

It is difficult to find the right words to describe Dr. Holtman’s passion for Neuro-Vision Rehabilitation.

She has a strong passion for growing awareness around neuro-vision rehabilitation due to her first-hand experience with concussions. This gives her a unique perspective and passion for helping patients return to everyday life activities and tasks with clearer vision.

While in New Hampshire for residency Dr. Holtman was in rehabilitation clinics one day out of every week - a very unique opportunity. She saw patients who had just had a stroke in their brain the day before, had just been in a car accident that week, or just had a brain aneurysm bleed. She was able to perform bedside eye exams and often times instruct the occupational therapists on vision activities for them to perform to help their patients get the eyes working together again.

We coordinate care with other medical professionals that the patient may already be seeing such as Primary Care doctors, Neurologists, Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, and Chiropractors.
