Adults and BVD
BVD can affect up to 70% of adults suffering from persistent headaches, 30% suffering from anxiety, and 30% to 50% who have persistent symptoms from a concussion or traumatic brain injury. However, a typical visit to an eye doctor only determines how well each eye can see (known as visual acuity) rather than finding out how well the eyes work together as a team (known as binocular vision).
Additionally, the standard binocular vision eye tests only identify major eye misalignments and double vision, rather than subtle misalignment. This makes it critical to test for even small amounts of vision misalignment.
