Seniors, Vision, and Traumatic Brain Injury | Sbm 16
1
According to the World Health Organization, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) will be ranked as a major cause of death and disability in the world. In the USA, 155,000 seniors will suffer TBIs and probably many more, unrecognized mild TBIs. So why talk about seniors (or patients over 65)? Everybody gets into automobile accidents, everybody falls. Unfortunately, older patients fall more often. And, the elderly get involved in their share of auto accidents as many seniors continue to drive into their 80?s and 90?s. I should know, I see these patients with DMV forms everyday in my office.
