Background: Many service members deployed to the Afghanistan and Iraq theatre of operations are returning with multiple injuries, including traumatic brain injury (TBI) and sensory impairment. Studies of sensory impairment among patients with TBI have focused either on the auditory or visual modality. However, their co-prevalence, termed dual sensory impairment (DSI), is not well-documented. We examined self-reported rates of auditory and visual impairment in Afghanistan and Iraq war Veterans receiving TBI evaluations.
