    Double vision after hemorrhage stroke
    Sedona11 posted:
    Hi! I'm a 44-year-old female who had a subarachnoid hemorrhage stroke about three weeks ago. I'm expected to recover fully (hooray!!) and am wondering how long it has taken others to be rid of their double vision... It seems to be slowing down my rehabilitative efforts to not be able to see
