Vision Health

Vision is one of our chief senses, but millions of people have problems with their vision every year—and some of these problems can cause permanent vision loss of even blindness. Early detection of these most common eye diseases and conditions, especially those that are age-related, gives patients much higher chances of retaining their vision. As we age, the risk of developing certain age-related eye diseases and conditions rises—but many can be found early through screening, so the more aware you are, the better! The following are the most prevalent eye diseases and conditions:

Brain Hot Spots for Post-Stroke Vision Recovery


Research done in Germany and published in the journal Restorative Neurology and Neuroscience suggests that vision restoration after a stroke depends mostly on activity of residual vision that is still left after the injury. The study showed that both local neuronal activity and activity in the immediate surrounding area influence the development of visual recovery "hot spots." The team maintains that this is evidence that recovery of vision is mediated by partially surviving neurons.
