Will Vision Return After Stroke?

First off, the answer to this popular question is yes, most likely.

Vision can absolutely return after stroke.

Sometimes it returns on its own. Other times, you need to participate in vision therapy and rehabilitation to get your eyesight back.

Either way, the answer is yes, there is hope for vision recovery after stroke.

How Long Will It Take?

Because every stroke is different, every recovery will be different.

This means that your vision recovery timeline will be very different from someone else’s.

Sometimes vision returns on its own after a month or two. Other times, it returns after months of therapy.

It really depends on the size and location of your stroke.

Being Proactive

Although vision sometimes returns on its own, we highly recommend participating in vision restoration therapy anyway.

It’s always better to be proactive than to hope that a situation will correct itself.

Even if you don’t want to pay for vision therapy, you can try doing eye exercises on your own at home.

Watching Your Progress

As you work to improve your vision after stroke, you probably won’t notice your improvements immediately.

Vision improvement is a very slow process and it can be hard to notice the improvements on a day-to-day basis.

Knowing this, try to keep doing your eye exercises and therapy consistently and trust that, when you zoom out and look at your progress on a month-to-month basis, there will be improvement.

Vision improvement is a slow process, but it has the potential to help most people recover their eyesight after stroke.
