Vision Rehab Treatment
(Salem, Oregon USA)
Question: What can be done regarding vision rehab in a stroke patient with homonymous hemianopsia who wants to resume driving again?
:The patient would need to visit a neuro-optometrist (this is a specialized optometrist, not just any optometrist). The neuro-optometrist can evaluate the stroke patient's vision, determine the level of damage, prescribe special glasses that can help with the visual field, and make recommendations about what if any visual rehab is needed.
