Effectiveness of computerized oculomotor vision screening in a military population: Pilot study

José E. Capó-Aponte, OD, PhD, et al.

The number of warfighters affected by blastinduced mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) has increased considerably in the recent years as a consequence of the current conflicts. Oculomotor (eye movement) vision problems frequently result from mTBI; however, conventional oculomotor examinations are time-consuming and can only be performed by an eye doctor. This limits the number of military personnel that can be evaluated for oculomotor problems before and after deployment. This study showed that computerized oculomotor vision screening performed by non-eye-care providers can be an effective means to expedite the identification and management of oculomotor vision problems in patients with or without mTBI.
