Is there anything that can be done about my visual symptoms caused by my stroke?

There are various techniques that can be used to try to help or compensate for the various visual effects of stroke. These include glasses, prisms, patching, magnifiers and scanning information to name a few. There has also been some research into computer based rehab programs which may help improve a person's ability to scan when they have field loss.
