The connection between our eyes and the brain is intimate. When an individual sustains any form of brain injury, be it due to COVID-19, a stroke, a car accident, or developmental delays, their vision can be significantly impaired.

A majority of patients who have been infected with COVID-19 in particular, have reported their experience of vision-related symptoms, including difficulties with reading, eye strain, blurred vision, and heightened sensitivity to light.

In the neuro-visual assessment, clinical indicators were observed in 83% of the patients, primarily related to the functions of eye teaming and eye movements essential for maintaining clear, stable, and adaptable vision without discomfort.

In addition, patients do have persisting symptoms such as mental fatique and other cognitive impairments.

Understanding Post-COVID Visual Symptoms: Guidance from a Neuro Vision Specialist

In the wake of COVID-19, many individuals are experiencing lingering visual symptoms that can significantly impact daily life. If you’re facing such challenges, you are not alone. Neuro Vision Specialist helps you to understand and manage these symptoms effectively.

Common Post-COVID Visual Symptoms:

  1. Double Vision and Blurriness: Are you experiencing instances of double vision or occasional blurriness? These symptoms can be a consequence of COVID-19, impacting the way your brain processes visual information.
  2. Dizziness in Specific Situations: Do you feel dizzy when bending over, rolling over in bed, making rapid head movements, or turning your head while walking? These symptoms can be related to vestibular disturbances often seen in post-COVID patients.
  3. Discomfort in Complex Visual Environments: Many post-COVID patients report discomfort, unsteadiness, or dizziness in specific situations such as:
    • Shopping in supermarkets with bright lights and crowded aisles.
    • Walking along tree-lined streets where light and shadow contrast sharply.
    • Viewing striped or intricate patterns which can be visually overwhelming.
    • Using digital screens like computers, tablets, or watching television, where rapid visual changes occur.
    • Being in crowded, moving environments or as a passenger in a vehicle.

These symptoms can arise from a heightened sensitivity in your visual system, a condition often exacerbated by COVID-19.
