Current research indicates that approximately 80% of patients that suffer from a Post Traumatic Vision Syndrome are struggling with vision deficits which are a direct result of their injury. Unfortunately, people are often told either that nothing can be done about their symptoms, or that the symptoms will go away over time.
Sometimes visual symptoms might not even appear for days, even weeks after an accident. Some symptoms may last only seconds, while others linger much longer, months and even years. Additionally, some symptoms might disappear after time, such as eye pain or headaches, and yet other symptoms remain, i.e., blurred or doubled vision. Keep in mind, that when someone is experiencing any of the following symptoms they could also have difficulty with reading and learning, as well as balance and movement (such as walking).
