About two thirds of people have vision problems after a stroke. This guide explains the different types of vision problems people can experience after a stroke and how they can be treated.
Visual field loss is a commonly reported side effect of stroke and can seriously impact on functional ability and quality of life. Published today in the journal, Neuro-Ophthalmology, a new study shares insights learned from recruitment of study participants to the 'VISION' trial, and how this may inform future, similar trials.

New research suggests significant inequality in vision care after stroke
This research will test a new questionnaire which has been designed to measure the impact that stroke-related vision problems have on a stroke survivor’s quality of life.

Existing vision tests do not tell us how a patient’s life will be influenced by their vision problems. This project aims to understand how the results of vision tests relate to how stroke survivors will be able to function in their daily lives.
One in five stroke survivors are left with partial or total loss of vision to one side following a stroke. The condition is called hemianopia, and can severely affect a stroke survivor's quality of life.
Every year we partner with RNIB to help raise awareness of regular eye tests.
