Vision and Stroke Recovery


“When I dare to be powerful – to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.”

Audre Lorde

Improved vision is not just for the physical eyes but it is also for your clarity and your aspiration for healing after your stroke. Stay focused, keep active, and trust that you will heal and continue to get better every day.


Vision loss after stroke

Your vision depends on a healthy eye to receive information and a healthy brain to process that information. The nerves in the eye travel from the eye through the brain to the occipital cortex at the back of the brain, allowing you to see.


Most strokes affect one side of the brain. Nerves from each eye travel together in the brain, so both eyes are affected. If the right side of your brain is damaged, the left side vision in each eye may be affected. It is rare for both sides of the brain to be affected by stroke. When it does happen, it can result in blindness.


My chiropractor at Apex Chiropractic and Wellness Center has shown me several of these are eye exercises that I can do at home.
