HANOVER, MA, ISSUED MARCH 20, 2024… Family Eyecare Solutions, an optometry practice specializing in vision therapy, myopia control, and post-concussion vision syndrome and led by Development Optometrist Laura Vasilakos, OD, FCOVD, was recently certified by Complete Concussion Management Inc.

Dr. Laura completed a training course Concussion Management for Physicians & Specialists which provides physicians with a comprehensive overview of the latest scientific evidence surrounding both acute and chronic concussions and CTE.

The program covers concussion prevalence, pathophysiology, baseline physical and neurocognitive testing and interpretation, acute concussion assessment, imaging, red-flags, return to learn/work/play, as well as persistent concussion symptoms and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy.

Following a concussion, there is often an interruption in communications between the eyes and the brain. Studies show that at least 50 percent of Traumatic Brain Injury patients suffer from visual dysfunctions, with one such study finding a 90 percent incidence of post-trauma visual complications. Visual problems are often overlooked during initial evaluation as symptoms may not be present until days, weeks or even longer following the incident.

 “Common vision problems following a concussion can include sensitivity to motion, headaches, dizziness and balance problems, sensitivity to light and inability to tolerate glare,” said Dr. Laura Vasilakos, founder of Family Eyecare Solutions.  “Treatment requires a multi-disciplinary effort, including vision rehabilitation as an important part of post-concussion care.”
