A Simple Vision Test Helps Our Eye Doctor To Detect Concussion
In the case of sports injury, the King-Devick test is simple to administer and easy to interpret. An injured athlete must read single-digit numbers displayed on cards or on an iPad. In cases of suspected head trauma, the athlete is given the test and if the time needed to complete the test is any longer than the athlete’s baseline test time, obtained by our vision therapy doctor in our office, the athlete is removed from play until our eye doctors give the go-ahead that they may rejoin their sport.
Don’t forget, to Protect Your Eyes From Cell Phones And Computers.
With comprehensive testing to help detect concussions and excellent quality care for vision issues related to concussions after the injury is detected, your eyes and your brain are in good hands with the Family Eye Care Center of Atlanta.
