Rehabilitation for vision loss?

I am interested in what your neurologist is doing for you. This is my summary. June 7 I had a "cramp" (doctors word) in my occipital lobe. Resulting in a 20% vision loss. We had a vision field test done (on our own). I am 65 they tell me I am in good shape, total cholesterol 109, BP 120/65. Neurologist put me on 120 mg Diltiazem daily. It seems there is therapy for other stroke injuries but nothing for vision loss. What are you doing to help you get by? Does anyone use dictation software?

When posters say you have vision loss is it a black out, a blur or like in my case missing vision patched together by a blurry line? What happens when you need new glasses?

Your insight and comments are appreciated.
