Many people who have a stroke or brain injury from tumor or trauma end up with significant vision loss. For example, a stroke on the left side of their body can lead to vision loss in the right half of the vision field. People are left seeing only a portion of what they should be seeing. Everyday activities can become difficult.

For example, a stroke on the left side of their body can lead to vision loss in the right half of the vision field. People are left seeing only a portion of what they should be seeing. Everyday activities can become difficult. Reading can be a challenge, and patients sometimes bump into things. Nausea and imbalance can result. For years, patients have received physical and occupational therapies to rebuild their physical skills. There has been nothing to offer them to rebuild vision.
