Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation is a specialized, individualized treatment regimen for those who have visual deficits as a direct result of physical disabilities, traumatic brain injuries, and other neurological insults. Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation Optometrists have special training and clinical experience in this area and understand how specific visual dysfunctions relate to a patient’s symptoms and performance.

Patients who can benefit from a neuro-optometric assessment include those with a history of: traumatic brain injury, concussion, stroke, chronic inflammation within the brain, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, and other conditions that can progress to affect the nervous system (such as Lyme Disease).

A Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation Optometrist evaluates many functions of the visual system, including:

  • How the eyes work together
  • Whether the eyes are working hard to focus and aim together
  • Eye scanning and tracking ability
  • How the person processes their environment and moves through it
  • The integration between vision and other systems such as balance, auditory, and the body’s sense of position in space
  • Complex visual perceptual ability (how a person organizes and interprets the information that is seen and gives it meaning and visual memory (the ability to remember something seen in the past)
  • Information provided during a standard eye exam such as visual acuity, refraction, eye health evaluation, and peripheral vision testing are required as well.

Following the examination, a Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation Optometrist will work with a patient to develop a treatment plan that is specially designed to improve or eliminate a patient’s specific symptoms and difficulties. Treatment may include specialized glasses to help with visual processing, and/or a Vision Rehabilitation program that incorporates both in-office and out-of-office procedures for the remediation and management of your visual problems with the goal to improve activities of daily visual living and performance.

In brain injury, often a single approach to rehabilitation is not sufficient to address all of a patient’s needs. An interdisciplinary, integrated team approach can play a vital role in the rehabilitation of patients with various types of neurological deficits. Your Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation Optometrist may work with other rehabilitation team members such as neurologists, rehab physicians, nurses, physical and occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, neuropsychologists, and audiologists.A

Sometime your commitments towards providing utmost care to your patients, brings limitless smiles on their face and gives reason to celebrate their victory.

Here is a success story of our patient (Medical Doctor) who was going through several visual problems for past 10 months post Traumatic Brain Injury, finally completed his 1st round of his Vision therapy & Vision Rehabilitation treatment with us. A warm gratitude from him to celebrate his success with our Team Caring Vision.


Here we are presenting our another successful case of mTBI/ concussion, a 37 years old male, a Doctor by profession, who met with an accident while cycling down the hill and he got mild trauma in his head.

Post-accident he started having several visual symptoms which includes Nystagmus in extreme lateral gazes, blurred vision, difficulty with focusing, occasional diplopia, severe dizziness while walking and many more. His COVD Quality of life score was 57 and PTVSS ( post trauma visual symptoms survey score) was 70.

Post examination we started with our Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation treatment protocol.

Post 40 sessions: He had shown remarkable improvements in his vision, body balance, and posture along with very good control over his Nystagmus as well. His COVD Quality of Life score has come down to 27 and his PTVSS score has reduced to 35.(*coming soon in ” Scientific Publication” with full details)

From the entire team of Caring Vision Therapy & Neuro-Vision Rehabilitation Centre I would like to congratulate him on his success towards betterment.

Patients Testimonial:


 I shall divide my story in 2 parts


I am a doctor by profession and an avid cyclist/sportsperson. I met with an injury on 27/Jun/2021 after a fall from my bicycle downhill from a ride. I suffered a broken collarbone and hit my head (I was wearing a helmet) and began experiencing visual difficulties in day to day activities. I went through a number of scans (MRIs and X-rays) and consulted many doctors but I was not getting any help for my visual disturbances. Coming from a medical background and being an active sportsperson it was getting all the more difficult for me to cope-up with my condition as exact diagnosis was not looking a possibility. My personal life, professional life and my active sports regime all had taken a hit culminating into my loss of confidence and a poor quality of life. And let me assure you that all my life I have always been a very happy go lucky person and taken all the problems head on and dealt with them with a very mature head.

After learning and reading a lot about Neuro rehab and organizations such as NORA and COVD, I came to know about Caring Vision Vison Therapy and Neuro Rehabilitation Centre managed and run by Dr Rabindra K Pandey and Dr Priya Pandey in Ashok Nagar, Chennai. After a brief telephonic conversation Dr Rabindra sent me an online exam to understand my state and once he analysed the results he told me that I had a sub-par quality of life score due to problems in my binocular vision. I was advised to come down to Chennai to the centre and get a more dedicated Neuro-visual evaluation done to see my further scope. Since I had no hope left from my current state of affairs considering the diagnosis dilemma, I decided to pay a visit to Chennai.


On 29/Apr/2022, approximately 10 months after my injury, I paid a visit to The Caring Vision Therapy Centre. Dr Rabi greeted me like a old friend (though we had never met before). He ran the required tests and found out that I am having difficulties in my vergence, fusion and accommodation also along with an impaired vestibulo-ocular reflex. The diagnosis which was not a possibility over the past 10 months had actually been made in around 2-3 hours of some exhaustive tests done at the centre which had some state of the art equipments and the right people (Read Dr Rabi, Dr Priya and the team) behind them. Over the past 25 days which includes some 20-21 sessions I have improved my above mentioned parameters and my quality of life score had improved. I have regained my lost confidence and feel like to take my problem head-on. Not only Dr Rabi and his team offer a World Class treatment regime, they also know that the segment of niche patients that they cater need motivation and a positive reinforcement to be treated completely.

I want all the people reading this to be clear about the fact that Neuro rehabilitation is a process of patience, a competent practitioner/team (this is rare), a healthy life style and proper nutrition. In case we are missing out on any of these parameters our recovery will be hampered by slow progress.

I will recommend that all ophthalmologists/neurologists/general practitioners should keep a vigil on the concussion symptoms that patients may suffer after a head injury and teach their patients about Neuro Rehabilitation.

And to my fellow patients who suffer from any Neuro-Visual disturbances after a head trauma/developmental Neurovision problem/CVI etc —>Please come and visit this Therapy Centre. You definitely need this

Kudos to Dr Rabindra and his team. Keep doing the good work Doc Saab. In you and your team I have found Hope, Belief and Life
