People have heard about brain injury but they really don't think about until it happens to them, which at that point it is all they or anyone they know can talk about. It is a sinister injury that can change everything in a blink of an eye, and as it goes on misunderstood the dark side of a person a new person starts to emerge, spouses suddenly in a relationship with a stranger, even the survivor does not know themselves. Lost alone and frightened learn about it before it’s too late, before it can take you or a loved one’s life away forever, the more you know the better you will be. You are not along there are millions of us among you. We represent over 70% of those in prison and even more of the homeless. Together we can stop the devastating effects of this sinister injury that can last a life time. One that is big business over 75 billion a year, where the rich control the destiny of the lost for a buck. Let us make a world where we are accepted not jailed or isolated, empowered not controlled. One where we embrace this new person to be a better, braver, strong more creative and productive part of society.

Upcoming Broadcasts

Myrna Hayes will discuss her experience following a Traumatic Brain Injury, Nothing she tried worked until she explored "Mind-Eye Institute". Now, Myrna is able to work and think coherently by wearing special glasses. These glasses were individually created for her using her particular pattern of navigation of the world. She will talk tonight about the use and care of these lenses. The Mind-Eye Institute is an optometry practice (for almost 30 years) with an emphasis on neuro-optometric rehabilitation. That is, working with the whole patient, not just the eyes. Their purpose is to connect optometry with brain function for better use the brain in daily functioning. By coordinating the eyes, ears, and brain, the signals travel in a unique pathway for each person using the patterns specific to each person. The Mind-Eye Research Division is very active, focusing on mining the secrets of retinal, electrical and biochemical connections and how they affect cardiac, endocrine, neurological and other systems. They work with cases of Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI), Post-Concussive Syndrome, challenges related to Autism, as well as learning and developmental challenges. We also have a representative, Cathy Grochowski, a patient care advocate from the Mind-Eye Inst. who will briefly discuss the neuroscience behind the coordination of the audio and visual systems to offer the patients a lasting and profound impact following brain trauma. She was the victim of her own TBI prior to her discovery of, and later employment with, the Mind-Eye Inst.
