Stroke-related eye conditions

Stroke is one of the most common causes of adult disability. Every year an estimated 152,000 strokes occur in the UK and about half of survivors will have a disability.

Your ability to see involves your brain as well as your eyes so stroke-related vision problems can be very complex to understand and treat. Some of the main visual problems include visual field loss, eye muscles and nerve problems, including double vision and visual processing.
