Occipital Stroke - Blindness- St. Louis
An_247296 posted:
Is there anyone in St. Louis caring for a person who suffered vision loss due to stroke? Seeking discussion and mutual support.
Richard C Senelick, MD responded:
There are a number of web sites and support groups dedicated to helping people who live with a visually impaired individual. Here are a few links. I hope they help and Good Luck.
After your stroke you may be experiencing a new normal, but remember what George Eliot said- It is never too late to be what you might have been. You still can achieve new goals.
suppt responded:
My sympathies from the East Coast. Also among the effects of my 87 year old mom's stroke. How old if I may ask?
An_247296 replied to suppt's response:
Thank you for your kind reply. My brother had the stroke in April 2011. He was 44 years old at the time. He is 45 years old now. We searched high and low for doctors, therapists, but they are stumped with occipital blindness. Finally, we found an optometrist and a chiropractor in St. Louis MO where we live to work with him. Although his field is limited to lower left quadrants, he can see movement, and he can scan to see simple shapes and objects now. We pray he can at least see his shaving cream, cereal box, etc, in the future. My prayers are with you. I am sure your heart aches for your mother. Best,
