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.
Vision problems are common after stroke. This Lectureship will investigate the link between the tasks used in vision rehabilitation and everyday visual activities. It will also use brain scanning to investigate the effects of rehabilitation on activity in the areas of the brain responsible for vision.
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.
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.

Every year we partner with RNIB to help raise awareness of regular eye tests.
