About two thirds of people experience some changes to their vision after stroke. These visual problems can lead to difficulty carrying out a lot of daily tasks and activities, from getting around to reading and shopping.

This guide explains the different types of problems you might experience, from eye movement problems to visual field loss, and how these problems are treated. At the end of the guide you will also find a list of organisations that offer support and further advice.
