For over 30 years, March has been recognized as Brain Injury Awareness Month in America. The aim of the 2021 – 2023 brain injury awareness campaign is to educate others about what it is like to live with a brain injury.
In the U.S., brain injury is a leading cause of death and disability. There are more than 5.3 million children and adults in the United States alone living with a brain injury-related disability. And an additional 2.8 million Americans sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI) annually. That means every 9 seconds, someone in the U.S. sustains a brain injury.
Brain injuries affect the way we think, act, move and feel, and can have both short-term and long-term effects on patients and their families.
Studies show that eye movements are closely linked to cognitive processes such as attention, memory, and decision-making.
RightEye provides a window into the brain through quick, digitized tests that produce objective reports to help easily illustrate and analyze eye movements.
In only 5 minutes, the RightEye Dynamic Vision assessment produces a graphical report with objective data providers use to baseline patients and help determine if they can benefit from vision exercises.
Doctors can assign customized Dynamic Vision Trainer programs for their patients to complete at home. RightEye providers then retest their patients in the office to determine patient progress and reevaluate their treatment plans.
RightEye providers all over the world use RightEye eye-tracking technology to improve their patient’s lives. This brain injury awareness month, RightEye invites health care providers to learn how they can improve care and support for individuals living with a brain injury.
