The Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation Association, International (NORA
) is a group of committed individuals from various disciplines focused on advancing the art and science of rehabilitation for the neurologically challenged patient. Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation is an individualized treatment regimen for patients with visual deficits as a result of physical disabilities, traumatic brain injuries, stroke, and other neurological problems. It specifically treats acquired visual dysfunctions as determined by standardized diagnostic criteria and should be a part of the multi-disciplinary rehabilitation team. The treatment regimens encompass medically necessary compensatory and non-compensatory lenses and prisms with or without occlusion and other appropriate strategies.
This conference will demonstrate the importance of neuro-optometry and its role in effectively collaborating with the rehabilitation team in improving patient outcomes.
