At VCDC, we work with patients with visual field loss due to strokes and other brain and eye injuries.  For some, visual rehabilitation helps them coordinate their reduced vision to other motor and cognitive pathways so that they can function again at home and at work.  For many patients, vision rehabilitation reduces their visual field loss.


A new study from the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine found that visual rehabilitation is effective for patients who have suffered vision loss related to stroke or traumatic brain injury.
