Abstract

Concussions, or mild traumatic brain injuries (mTBI), are on the forefront of sports medicine. There is a spectrum of symptoms associated with mTBI, some of which include blurriness, double vision, and light sensitivity. Further evaluation for nonconcussion-related causes is warranted if vision changes do not improve concurrently with other symptoms. Keeping in mind other less obvious injuries, including retinal detachment, is important when performing an initial evaluation or follow-up of an mTBI.
