Comparing two treatment strategies in patients with visual problems after stroke
Comparing two treatment strategies in patients with visual problems after stroke
Problems with movement and finding your way around (visual perception)
A stroke can affect your visual perception and your ability to interact with the space and objects around you.
Vision problems after stroke
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 scanning training interventions help people with visual field loss after stroke?
Junior Research Training Fellowship: Christine Hazelton
Personal Alarms from Careline365
Type: Support
For stroke survivors and those at risk of stroke, a personal alarm can be an important piece of life-saving equipment. The Careline365 Alarm service helps thousands of elderly and disabled people in the UK to continue living independently at home.
How will my child recover?
Find out information on how a stroke can affect your child and what support is available. The effects and impact of stroke are different for every child.
Confusion and denial (anosognosia)
Sometimes after a stroke, people are not able to recognise the effect that it has on them. So you may not know that you’ve lost movement in your arm or leg, for example. This is called anosognosia.
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.
Migraine and stroke
Migraines have not been shown to cause stroke, but if you have migraine with aura you have a very slightly higher risk of stroke. Learn more about the relationship between migraine and stroke.
Stroke mimics and functional neurological disorder
This page is about stroke symptoms that are not caused by a stroke. Here we explain stroke mimic diagnosis, symptoms and treatments.
