Video: Dr. Kristen Gunn on Eyecare Treatment after a Concussion or Traumatic Brain Injury

In the video above, Dr. Kristen Gunn of Opticare Vision Centers in Northern Kentucky shares her expertise about patients who have had a concussion or multiple concussions and patients who have had mild traumatic brain injuries.

A lot of times patients will ask me what kind of symptoms they should expect when experiencing something like this and there isn't really a straightforward response. The symptoms aren’t black and white for every patient. There are definitely a variety of symptoms that patients can experience and it really differs from patient to patient.

The most common symptoms that I’ve seen are light sensitivity and a lot of anxiety especially going out in public and in crowded spaces.  There are also definitely issues with focusing even on the simplest daily activities that used to not take any concentration at all.

So what we do during the exam is really listen to the patient and have them tell us in detail what they're experiencing so we can get a full understanding of what they're going through.

We do the full examination just to make sure everything is healthy and then we go into some pretty intense muscle and focusing testing but we never want to push it too hard. When you push too hard even with the treatment it can cause a lot of issues as far as even reverting back to getting worse and worse, so we really need to be careful with how much we push the treatment.

The treatment can range from glasses with prism which is a very specific prescription catered to you and how your eye muscles work together. Or possibly getting your eye muscles to work kind of like physical therapy for your muscles which is called vision therapy. Please reach out if you have any questions to our Newport or Ft. Mitchell offices.

Newport Office Update: Congratulations to Jan on her Retirement

She will be dearly missed by all of our staff and patients who came to know her over the years. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank Jan for her professionalism, high level of customer service, and of course, for her friendship.

COVID-19 Update for Newport & Ft. Mitchell Locations: Re-opening May 4th

COVID-19 UPDATE – REOPENING MAY 4th – from Opticare Vision Centers

Dear Patients,

With Governor Beshear’s announcement of “Healthy at Work” phased reopening of the economy starting with healthcare facilities, we will begin seeing patients for routine care on Monday, May 4th. We will be following the Governor’s guidelines to continue safe practices for patients in our office. *NOTE* The guidelines require patients to wear their own mask to their appointment.

We expect the demand for routine appointments to be high, so please call the office to make your appointment as soon as possible to reserve your spot.

Here are some of the accommodations that we are making to keep you and your family safe:

  • Limiting the number of patients in the office or any area at one time
    • We kindly ask for only the person with the appointment to enter the office
  • Coming out to your car to dispense glasses and contact lenses (curbside pickup)
  • Decreasing physical touch-points in the office
    • No paperwork – Appointments now require pre-registration on our website
    • No signatures on credit card receipts – touchless transactions when possible
  • Disinfection of glasses and sunglasses between patients
  • Staff wearing PPE (masks, etc.) for close patient encounters
  • We may ask you to leave the office if you show flu-like signs, cold/fever, or coughing

In addition to these steps, we also have telehealth appointments for those who cannot physically come into the office.

We will continue to do some things that we have always done for the safety of our guests:

  • Disinfection of areas in the office after patient encounters
  • Disinfection of all equipment used for examination, glasses, or contact lenses

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time. We are looking forward to serving you again!

Sincerely,

Dr. Keith Sellers, Dr. Josiah Young, Dr. Kristin Gunn,

and the Team at Opticare Vision Centers in Northern Kentucky
