Vergence eye movements are used to binocularly track objects varying in depth, as well as to maintain accurate and sustained eye alignment during such complex and demanding tasks as reading. Abnormality in the vergence system may adversely affect activities of daily living (ADLs) and produce nearwork symptoms. The present findings objectively document a range of steady-state and dynamic abnormalities in individuals with mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). Understanding these deficits may lead to more efficacious remediation in the individual with mTBI, with improvement in their ADLs and reduction in symptoms at near.
