After Stroke — Vision Changes After a Stroke

Did you know that about 65% of stroke survivors experience vision problems? These changes can impact daily activities like reading, moving around, or recognizing people and objects.

Problems can include:

  • Visual field loss
  • Eye movement problems
  • Visual processing problems
  • Dry eyes or light sensitivity

Ophthalmologists, orthoptists, doctors, and occupational therapists can provide guidance on managing and treating vision changes after a stroke. By learning scanning techniques and participating in therapy, stroke survivors can maximize their existing vision and improve their quality of life.
