have u still got vision loss, n thanks for replying

Hi Gary, Loss of vision and perceptual issues are slightly different. Loss of vision - if this improves within the first month it is a good sign, but if it does not it may be permamnent. It would worth asking your GP to refer you to opthalmology. Wishing you all the best. Kusal

@mealand66 Hi Garry & welcome to the forum. I had an occipital lobe stroke which gave me lots of lovely flashing lines in front of my eyes & also took everything off centre. The lines disappeared after a few weeks & slowly things moved back to where they should be. 18 months on i still have some double vision & blurred vision. Hopefully yours will start to improve. If you’ve not been referred to opthalmology it would be worth asking your GP to do it.

Best wishes

Ann
