SEARCH: Scanning eye training for vision problems after stroke
Immediately after their stroke around 30% of people have a vision problem called hemianopia – loss of vision on one side of the visual field. This leaves them with a ‘blind side’ to their right or left. This project will investigate whether a new treatment can help stroke survivors with hemianopia to manage their vision problems.
