Description:

As the medical world learns more about concussion, optometry's role on the interprofessional team continues to expand. We now know a great deal about how the eyes respond to concussion, but treatment methods continue to evolve and be validated through research. In pediatric concussion, there remains little consensus on visual management. The goal of this lecture is to provide cases and preliminary literature on potential directions for management of this pressing issue that could uniquely shape optometry.
