Loss of Vision Due to Brain Injury

Have you been a victim of injury in Long Island?

There are many different ways that an individual can sustain a brain injury and there are many different effects that this brain injury can have on an individual. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDCP), there are at least 1.4 million people that suffer from traumatic brain injuries in the United States every year.

One of the very serious results of a brain injury could be loss of vision. While this vision loss is not always the same in every individual, there are common patterns that can be seen in different injuries.

Some of the vision problems that people experience include:

These vision problems can be incurred due to various diseases; however a violent blow to the head can cause vision loss in these various ways. Retinal detachment involves the retina of the eye peeling away from the underlying layer of support tissue. Because the detachment is not instantaneous, the victims may experience a slow loss of vision, or blurred vision through the process.

Vitreous hemorrhage is a leaking of blood into the vitreous humor of the eye; the vitreous humor is a clear gel substance that fills the space in between the lens and the retina of the eyeball. The optic nerve is also known as the cranial nerve two and it transmits the visual information that the retina picks up, to the brain. When it is damaged, the information that is transmitted can be compromised or blocked.
