The research team is looking for people who have experienced sight loss following a stroke, who would be interested in taking part in a focus group for a stroke research study. They are looking specifically for people with experience of homonymous hemianopia, which is the complete or partial loss of peripheral vision to one side.
It can be difficult to adapt to this change in vision and some people adapt quicker than others. We do not currently understand how people ‘adapt’ or know what the term ‘adaptation’ really means. If we can understand this better, we will be able to improve support for people with hemianopia.
