Is there anything that can be done about the 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 a stroke. These include glasses, prisms, patching, magnifiers and scanning information. There has also been some research into computer based rehabilitation programs which may help improve a person's ability to scan when they have loss of field vision.
