Your Brain & Vision

Your brain and eyes have an integral connection that helps you visualize everything you see around yourself. A disconnection between the brain and eyes can affect your visual senses and cause problems in your vision.

Stroke

Stroke is the leading cause of adult disability in Canada. About 300,000 Canadians are living with the effects of stroke.

One-third of stroke survivors experience some sort of vision loss due to injury to the brain. This can show up as a loss of visual field (hemianopia, hemianopsia, or quadrantanopia), uncontrollable eye movement (strabismus, diplopia, or nystagmus), eyelid droop, dry eye, pupil dilation, and/or difficulty recognizing things.

Dr. Golemba has gone through advanced training in neuro-optometric rehabilitation and have tools like Side Vision Awareness Glasses (SVAG), advanced optical technology developed by Dr. Errol Rummel, at our disposal.

Concussions

At Valley Vision, we believe that brain injuries are one of the most unfortunate things that can happen to a human body, and concussions are one such type of brain injury that can disorganize your brain’s functioning.

If your concussions are causing you problems with concentration, memory, balance, and coordination, you need the help of an experienced doctor from our clinic that can help you get back on track with your life.
