My Dad,, who is 78, had a mild stroke 3 months ago. Outside of some short term memory issues, the main result was loss of vision to the outside of each eye. He sees straight ahead but nothing to the sides.
We had him get new glasses thinking that would help see the best he can with what sight he does have. Im not confident that the Dr giving him the exam got a good picture of what Dad can actually see due to Dad getting mixed up in how he will say what he sees.
Does that make sense? He watches TV, but cannot read any more as the letters are blurry (dbl vision?) and he has a hard time making the letters make sense.
Im really hoping some of this will improve in the next few months as the brain continues to heal/compensate.
My question is...is there an eye exam that can be done that would be more accurate in these situations?
Thank you! These discussions have been very helpful! It is so hard to see my Dad who had SUCH a sharp mind & was so excellent with numbers to lose so much independence due to his eyesight. But Im grateful...as it could be so much worse!View Thread
