Is it

Question:Is it possible to improve visual field after five years of glaucoma and a stroke? My optic nerve had a considerable damage before the stroke now I can hardly see with my right eye.

Answer: I believe that damage to the optic nerve caused by injury or disease tends to be permanent. My understanding is that the cells that form the optic nerve don't regenerate or repair themselves, however, I know that there is always new discoveries and research occurring so it would be best to check with an opthalmologist or optometrist for the best answer to your question.
