Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation Therapy (NORTH) is a form of vision therapy used to treat vision problems caused by neurological conditions. For example, NORTH is an effective treatment for conditions such as cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, and stroke. So, the question is, are all optometrists trained in this form of therapy? If you want to try this therapy, visit our offices at Eyes for Wellness in Indianapolis, IN.

What Is Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation Therapy?

Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation Therapy is a form of vision therapy that uses both cognitive and perceptual rehabilitation techniques to treat patients with neurological conditions that cause vision problems. NORTH is an effective treatment for conditions such as cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, and stroke.

Optometrists who have undergone special training in NORTH can prescribe a treatment plan tailored to each patient. NORTH aims to improve our patient's quality of life by helping them regain their ability to perform everyday activities.

How Can Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation Therapy Help?

The recovery process can be complex if you have ever had a concussion. However, optometrists trained in neuro-optometric rehabilitation therapy (NORTH) can help speed up your recovery by assessing and treating visual problems that often occur after a trauma.

NORTH is a specialized form of optometry that focuses on treating patients with neurological conditions. Optometrists undergoing NORTH training can assess and treat visual problems, such as neurological disorders, including concussions.

If you have suffered a concussion, it's essential to see an optometrist trained in NORTH to get the treatment you need to recover as quickly and effectively as possible. Optometrists who are not trained in NORTH may not assess and treat your vision problems, which could prolong your recovery.

Are All Optometrists Trained in Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation Therapy?

No, not all optometrists are trained in NORTH. In addition, optometrists who want to undergo NORTH training must complete an additional two years of schooling beyond the four years required to become licensed optometrists. This training means only a limited number of optometrists are trained in NORTH.

If you need NORTH services, it's essential to find an optometrist who has undergone the necessary training. You can ask your regular optometrist if they're trained in NORTH, or you can search for a NORTH-trained optometrist in your area.

While not all optometrists are trained in NORTH, the number of optometrists who have undergone NORTH training is growing. As more people become aware of the benefits of NORTH, more optometrists will undergo the necessary training to provide this vital service.

If you think you might benefit from NORTH services, talk to your regular optometrist or search for a NORTH-trained optometrist in your area. NORTH can help you recover from a concussion more quickly and effectively, so don't wait to get the treatment you need.
