Report: Even Mild-to-Moderate Traumatic Brain Injuries Can Still Impact Patients’ Quality of Life

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) affects the critical functions of the brain and is a major cause of disability for many Americans. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 61,000 people died from TBIs in the United States in 2019. That same year, falls and auto accidents accounted for nearly half of all TBI-related hospitalizations.

A timely diagnosis and treatment are essential in TBI cases, as renowned ophthalmologist Dr. Steven H. Rauchman details in Mild-to-Moderate Traumatic Brain Injury: A Review with Focus on the Visual System,” published in the May 2022 issue of Neurology International. Dr. Rauchman explains how TBIs are “a major global public health problem… that can interfere with everyday life by compromising the ability to work, sleep, drive, read, communicate and perform numerous activities previously taken for granted.”

In his research, Dr. Rauchman found that “[t]reatment and rehabilitation options available to TBI sufferers are inadequate and there is a pressing need for new ways to help these patients to optimize their functioning and maintain productivity and participation in life activities, family and community.”

He has established a virtual medical platform to perform evaluations and examinations, so patients from around California have ready access to expert care.
