Description of Activity

Vision is considered a primary sensory system. It supports the individual's perception of the world - identifying their location in space, the location of different objects relative to the individual and each other, visual stimuli and the direction of the individual's response to different objects. However, what happens when the brain suffers an injury? This presentation will cover the visual system and outline the effects of injury, its visual manifestations and some management options employed to improve and normalise visual function.
