Stroke-related eye conditions

Strokes occur when a part of your brain is starved of oxygen. Vision problems are common after you have a stroke. This is because our eyes send visual information to different parts of the brain involved in seeing.

If a stroke affects certain parts of the brain then this can affect your sight. Stokes can cause vision problems including visual field loss, double or blurry vision and can also affect visual processing.
