Visuospatial Impairment

John Ross Rizzo, Mahya Beheshti, Neera Kapoor

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Following stroke, a constellation of vision symptoms and signs may manifest, typically falling into three major categories: afferent (sensory), efferent (motor), and higher-level visual perceptual. This chapter provides the rehabilitation clinician with high-yield symptoms, a vision screening protocol, criteria for when to refer for detailed vision assessment, as well as generalized treatment options for vision dysfunctions that are amenable to intervention. Subsequently, key neurologic findings with related diagnostics and therapeutic approaches are described following this categorical structure for more common vision problems post-stroke.
