This is to everyone who experiences blindness do to a stroke or brain injury. My brain injury brought on the strokes I had that left me partially blind. At first it was hard to get used to. I learned to compensate for my blindess (peripheral blindness) very quickly. I did lose my drivers liscence because of it and I am still unable to drive because of it. My eye doctor told me that whatever improvement that is seen in the first year, is all that will improve over a lifetime. I told him he didn't know who he was dealing with (in a respectful manner). I am confident that when I get my peripheral vision tested again this spring, I will have improvement and I will be able to get my liscence back. I just know it will happen. If the problem is in the visual cortex in my brain, than I don't see how positive thought and focus won't make my vision come back. You just gotta believe people, it will come back!
