A conceptual model for vision rehabilitation

Vision impairments can occur after various degrees of stroke and/or brain injury. Many stroke patients will have some form of vision dysfunction. While the negative effects can be extensive and potentially disabling, the clinical presentation can be subtle and take time to diagnose correctly. Additionally, the functional implications of visual deficits may limit recovery during standard rehabilitation and decrease overall quality of life. A conceptual model to guide clinicians and rehabilitation professionals in vision assessment and treatment could help in generating accurate diagnoses, making appropriate referrals, and providing timely care to Veterans.
