Abstract

Many patients will experience some type of visual dysfunction following a stroke. The visual changes associated with stroke can be categorized as sensory (visual acuity and visual field), motor (extraocular muscle motility), and perceptual. These disturbances affect the patient's quality of life and can impede overall rehabilitation. Many of these impairments can be addressed by simple yet effective techniques. As a result, vision rehabilitation specialists are becoming an important part of the multidisciplinary stroke rehabilitation team.
