examined on the field by Dr. Jaqueline Theis
About 500 concussions are diagnosed by the UC Berkeley student health center each year. And yet the injury is notoriously tricky to diagnose and treat. Two UC Berkeley doctors--sports physician Casey Batten and optometrist Jaqueline Theis--are deploying the tools of optometry to help bring greater clarity to the field and to ease the way for all students, whether athletes or not, back into their academic saddles. I wrote a piece about the subject for the print-only Berkeley Optometry magazine in December; it was republished, online, by CalBears.
