Objective: Convergence insufficiency (CI) (i.e., abnormal near point of convergence [NPC]) following sport-related concussion (SRC) has been reported in 45% of athletes and linked to neurocognitive impairments (Pearce et al., 2015). This study expanded prior research to examine the relationship between CI and neurocognitive data at multiple time intervals during the recovery period following SRC. Method: Patients (n = 72 males, n = 34 females) 16.2 +/- 1.9 years old diagnosed with SRC were assigned to normal near point of convergence (NPC) (n = 77; mean convergence ≤ 5 cm) and CI (n = 29; mean convergence > 5 cm) groups, and administered Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing (ImPACT) and Vestibular/Ocular-Motor Screening (VOMS) at first evaluation 5.06 +/- 3.8 days post injury and at clearance for return to play 34.1 +/- 32.7...
