EYE PROBLEMS AFTER STROKE
CAN BE AN ADDED DISABILITY
Eye problems can vary after a stroke and the vision problems can cause other
problems after a stroke. Maybe you lose your site all together. Eye problems
can mean that you may have a problem writing and/or reading. You could also have blurred vision or double vision. There could be a light sensitivity problem.
It all depends on a lot of factors involved. The side of the brain that has been
affected by the stroke. The amount of time before you received medical
attention. I've spoken to a number of stroke victims that have had vision
problems due to their stroke. Light sensitivity can cause a stroke victim to not
want to go outside. It's too painful. They may wear sun glasses inside at all
times, due to the lights on in the house.
One stroke victim told me that he can use the computer, but not for very long.
Maybe 20 or 30 minutes before his eyes hurt so much that he can't do it any
longer. Some people have said that the first sign they had, where they
thought they could be having a stroke was some sort of eye problem.
If you have a stroke, you should definitely get checked out with an eye
examination. It's important that you do this. It could end up saving
your eye sight. You need to know if there is a problem with your eyes.
You need to know if there is a solution to solve the problem, help make it
better, or keep it from getting worse.
When your eye sees something, it is routed to your brain where the
process takes place to let you know what to do next. If you have had
a stroke and have brain injury, it can very well effect all your
surroundings. Your brain and your eyes work together . . . such as . . . you
see your shoes on the floor and it is processed to the brain, where the brain
then lets you know to put them on . . . or . . . you are hungry and when you
look at the refrigerator it is processed in the brain to have you open the door.
