About this study
This proposal aims to describe the oculometric features present during King-Devick (K-D) testing for subjects who experienced sports-related concussion. The investigators aim to better describe the underlying oculomotor anomalies present in this cohort that lead to increased K-D test time. Understanding these anomalies will allow for better understanding of the effects of sports-related concussion and may provide a rapid and reliable metric for diagnosing concussion as well as monitoring long-term recovery.
Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. If you need assistance understanding the eligibility criteria, please contact the study team.
