My vision was affected by a stroke, will it improve?

Some people may see some improvement in their vision up to four months after a stroke. This is will depend on where the damage in your brain happened as well as the type of stroke you had and other existing health problems.

Unfortunately for many people, especially those with loss of visual field, sight loss may be permanent.
