NEW POST! March is "Traumatic Brain Injury" (#TBI) awareness month and in honor of my best friend Amanda, I participated in the San Diego Brain Injury Foundation "Walk for Recovery" on March 21st, 2015. Retired football players and soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan have brought some much needed attention to TBI's in recent years - help the TBI awareness movement by knowing the facts and encouraging your loved ones to always WEAR A HELMET!

ABI’s result in visual deficits nearly 20% of the time. Here are some recent developments in the field, which may hold promise for some. All are entirely non-invasive, and apparently safe.
None of these therapies are a panacea. They will, at best, produce marginal gains in vision. But, our son’s Bart’s gains allowed him to read across a page and to navigate without being blind-sided. That is better than a stick in the eye. (Sorry, got to keep a sense of humor, especially faced with TBI).
An emerging novel research study on visual field restoration based on concepts of neuroplasticity, being conducted at University of Rochester in New York State, under the direction of Krystel R. Huxlin, Ph.D.
Improved Visual Acuity at any age: Promising work at University of Califormian, Riverside
Finally, an oldie, but goodie: Son Bart shown on NBC Nightly News in 2008. He followed Nova Vision's Vision Restoration Therapy (VRT) which succeeded in restoring roughly 8% of his field of vision.(He has hemaniopsia as a result a severe TBI)
