What is RightEye
Did you know a concussion is considered a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)?
According to a study done by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2014 about 2.87 million TBI-related emergency visits, hospitalizations, and deaths occurred in the United States. Over 837,000 of these health events among children and those who survive a TBI can cause effects that last a few days, or the rest of their lives. How is this information related to RightEye and our office? We use RightEye, as well as cognitive assessment tools, to identify areas of the brain that have been affected by a concussion or other traumatic brain injury. RightEye allows us to see how well the brain is functioning through different eye movements. To see a test completed, watch the "What is RightEye" video.
The best way for us to identify these abnormal or disrupted brain activities is to have a baseline test completed BEFORE an injury occurs which is why all of our patients receive a baseline test during their initial exam. If you haven't been to our office and you have received a concussion in the past, it is not too late! Dr. Drew has specialized training in treating concussions and will use the information from the RightEye exam as well as the cognitive assessment to create an individualized treatment plan for you.
RightEye also offers other tests and has many benefits for those who may struggle with concentration, reading, driving or for those who want to improve sports performance! To learn more, watch the Reading EyeQ or the Sports EyeQ videos above or call our office to learn how RightEye has benefits for you!
