Problems Seeing Straight After Whiplash?

Convergence insufficiency (CI) is characterized by a reduced ability of the eyes to work together to focus on nearby objects, which can lead to symptoms such as headaches, blurred or double vision, and an inability to concentrate. A recent study found that patients with a history of whiplash are three times more likely to experience symptoms related to CI. This highlights the importance of proper evaluation of the visual system among those who have suffered whiplash associated disorders to aid in the reduction of associated symptoms.
