Comparing two treatment strategies in patients with visual problems after stroke
Junior Research Training Fellowship: Christine Hazelton
Thousands of stroke survivors with visual problems could improve their sight from the comfort of their own home using two new web-based therapies.
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.
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.
