Vergence eye movement rehabilitation was performed
in 12 individuals with mild traumatic brain
injury who had oculomotor-based reading problems.
Vergence eye movement parameters were assessed
before and after the oculomotor rehabilitation. Following
oculomotor training, most vergence parameters
significantly improved and/or normalized. In
addition, nearwork-related symptoms were reduced
and visual attention improved. No improvement was
found following placebo training. The findings suggest
the presence of considerable residual neurovisual
plasticity in these individuals.
