Madonna Celebrates Healthy Vision Month
July 21, 2021

At Madonna, we provide intensive and comprehensive rehabilitation programs for individuals recovering from a neurological illness or serious injury. Vision issues are common among our patients across all levels of care, especially those who have survived traumatic brain injuries or strokes. Addressing an individual’s ability to see clearly early in the rehabilitation program can improve results for many patients because vision relates directly to balance, attention and interaction with people and objects in one's environment.
