Abstract

Visual field defects (VFD) affect around one fifth of stroke survivors. They typically cause loss of up to half of an individual’s vision, severely limiting the sensory information they receive about their environment. VFDs impact on practical aspects of daily life, social activities are negatively affected, and psychological effects include loss of self-confidence. A range of interventions exist: these are proposed to work through restitution of the lost visual field; compensation via behaviour changes; substitution using a device or extraneous modification; or assessment/screening, ensuring diagnosis and treatment.
In this Cochrane review we aimed to determine the effects of any intervention targeting visual field defects in people with stroke.
