Free Lecture: Optometric Management of Dizziness and Dysequilibrium - Curtis R. Baxstrom, OD

How to test for the specific visual deficits accompanying brain injury, concussion, stroke and trauma will be covered along with treatment protocols including lenses, prisms, filters, and neuro- optometric rehabilitation. Dynamic case presentation will give you the opportunity to experience – from the moment they call your office through testing and treatment – the steps of helping more brain injury patients recover successfully.
