Abstract

An estimated 20% to 57% of people have visual field defects after stroke, affecting function, quality of life, ability to participate in rehabilitation, depression, anxiety, and social isolation. There are many interventions for visual field defects, which are proposed to work by either restoring the visual field (restitution); compensating for the visual field defect by changing behavior or activity (compensation); or substituting for the visual field defect by using a device or extraneous modification (substitution).
