Have you suffered from a Brain Injury? ๐Ÿง 

Brain injuries from a fall, motor vehicle accident, concussion, sports-related injury, brain tumor, stroke and many more can often cause a lot of visual disturbances. Some may experience light sensitivity, blurred vision, loss of visual field (side vision), headaches, challenges with reading and/or eye movements.
