Vision Problems Should Not Be Overlooked After a Boca Raton Car Accident

A Boca Raton car accident gives you plenty to worry about. You may have to get your broken leg set, pick up medication for your pain, worry about alternative transportation, and get your car fixed. These are your immediate concerns. Compared to medical bills and insurance issues, the blurry vision and light sensitivity might not seem like a big deal. However, it is important that eye injuries not be overlooked after a Florida car crash.

Vision changes commonly occur after car accidents. Unless there is an obvious eye injury, these changes are usually symptoms of an injury to the brain or optic nerve.  Vision changes caused by brain injury include:

  • Aching eyes
  • Headaches after performing visual tasks
  • Blurry vision
  • Blurring when shifting gaze from far to near or near to far
  • Double vision
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Sensitivity to glare
  • Words appear to move while reading
  • Eyes seem to work separately
  • Losing one's place while reading or problems tracking moving objects
  • Difficulty comprehending while reading
  • Problems with concentrating or paying attention
  • Problem retaining visual memories
  • Inability to recognize faces or objects
  • Difficulty judging distance or telling if an object is near or far
  • Inability to maintain eye contact
  • Loss or reduction of visual field

Vision changes after a Boca Raton car crash should be discussed with an eye doctor. The problems may be temporary or longer-lasting, but even permanent damage can be treated with vision therapy and corrective lenses.
