Regain Your Visual Independence

Suffering a stroke can bring about profound changes, not only in one's physical abilities but also in visual abilities. Post-stroke vision problems can significantly impact daily life, but there is hope for recovery through post-stroke vision therapy.

How Does a Stroke Affect Vision?

A stroke occurs when blood flow to the brain is disrupted, sometimes leading to brain damage. This impact can result in a host of challenges, including weakness or paralysis, memory and speech difficulties, confusion, balance issues, and vision changes.

Possible vision changes include:

  • Binocular Vision Issues

    Binocular vision, which allows the brain to merge images from both eyes into a single, clear image, may be affected after a stroke. This can lead to double vision, depth perception problems, headaches, eyestrain, and difficulty with tasks like driving.

  • Visual Field Loss

    Some individuals may experience loss of peripheral vision, causing a partial or complete blind spot in their visual field.

  • Ocular Motor Dysfunction

    This condition can disrupt smooth eye movements, making reading and walking more challenging.

  • Strabismus

    Also known as "crossed eyes," strabismus affects eye alignment and can impact vision.

  • Visual Perceptual and Processing Deficits

    Difficulties in processing visual information in the brain can lead to perceptual issues.


How Can Post-Stroke Vision Therapy Help?

Even if there's nothing wrong with the eyes, brain damage can limit one’s vision. Vision therapy bridges the gap, enhancing the connection between the eyes and the brain and improving various stroke-related vision problems.

Vision therapists employ various techniques and tools, including games, balance exercises, prisms, and special lenses. These therapies are designed to maximize vision and help stimulate and reinforce the brain-eyes connection, thereby enhancing daily functioning.

When to Consider Vision Therapy After a Stroke

  • At the Onset of Visual Changes

    When you start experiencing visual changes after a stroke, incorporating vision therapy into your recovery plan early on can help you regain lost visual function.

  • Persistent Visual Symptoms

    If vision problems persist or worsen as you recover from a stroke, it's crucial to address them promptly. Vision therapy can help manage and improve these persistent symptoms.

  • Balance or Coordination Issues

    Post-stroke vision therapy can help with balance, coordination, headaches, and dizziness caused by visual issues after a stroke. It can improve your vision and overall health.

  • Reintroducing Visual Activities

    Whether reading, using a computer, or enjoying hobbies that require visual focus, therapy can help you regain the confidence to engage in these activities comfortably.

I've been going here for awhile. The people upfront often change but everyone is always very nice an... d friendly. Dr. Luebbe is the best! She is very nice and personable. I mainly just wanted to shout her out.

Dr Luebbe did a great job with my eye exam and the front didn't hesitate to place my lenses in frame... s I brought in from elsewhere. They handled my insurance with no issues. I believe it was two weeks to get them made. I'm a new glasses wearer and so far it's been fantastic.

Custom Eyes was efficient and very helpful with frame selection.

Wonderful staff - smart, kind, answered questions clearly, and didn't try to hard-sell ridiculously ... expensive frames on people.

Wonderful, thoughtful service. My new eye care company.

It was very easy to schedule an appointment online. Everyone at the practice is very friendly and he... lpful! Dr. Luebbe does a great job of a full examination and explains why she is asking questions, and walks you through any suggestions she has. They even gave a suggestion of where I could find the recommended over the counter eye drops for the lowest price, I didn't even have to ask. This was a great experience and I will definitely go back!

Staff was super friendly, nice and helpful. Store was very clean, they really keep up on sanitizing ... an instrument right after it was used.

The best service I have ever Experienced. They went above and beyond. I would Recommend them to anyo... ne who needs a eye doctor and to get glasses. They Doctor took his time with me and explained everything and Traci who was so patient with me I had a hard time choosing frames and she was right there helping me out picked a fabulous pair she explained all the details that would be put in my glasses. Probably the best service I have experienced over the past year I’ve seen 4 Eye doctors and they are by far by far the best.

Very professional, friendly staff and optometrists. They are very knowledgeable and trustworthy. My ... eyes will go no where but to Custom Eyes! Thank you for all you do.

I’ve been to many eye doctors. I’ve not had one that would sit and talk with me and geek out abo... ut the cool eye tests they do. I had one of the more advanced eye tests done that replaces actually dilating the eye. After the test he showed me what he was looking at on the computer. It was so very interesting and educational. The check in process and pre-exam as well as the exit process was all very enjoyable as well. The staff is all top notch. Let me add in how clean and sanitized it was as well. I will return and recommend.

Quickly got in with only a brief wait. Staff were very friendly and professional. Really appreciate ... Dr. Drake and his great care. Stephanie helped me get my eyeglasses at the end and brought out a few pairs for me to try that weren’t out. Very helpful and got the right color and size. Yay!

A great team with awesome customer service! Dr. Cossette creates a fun and relaxed atmosphere during... exams, along with careful and thorough explanations. Highly recommend.

The Staff was very knowledgeable and accepted the Eyes Of Hope Voucher I received when my home burnt... down last December. The Doctor gave me a script and confidence and told me my vision was better than what I thought it was. The staff member helped me find a perfect frame was so humble and patient with me even after she found out I had no money. The staff member went above and beyond making my morning okay. I rate 10/10 A+++
