Hi, Im looking for someone with the same symptoms I have. I was in perfect health until I had a stroke 9 months ago and lost vision in the right half of both eyes. And now experience severe visual release hallucinations in the loss area. Wavy light bars, TV like static and other shapes moving all directions all the time. I met another stroke survivor with similar vision loss but his area is grey. I cant find anyone with similar symptoms. Its so hard to explain this to people all the time and even most doctors dont really know what Im talking about except my neuro-ophthalmolgist. Every day is like living in the twilight zone. I would love to connect with anyone with something similar or if anyone knows of any other sites I could try. Thanks

This test went HORRIBLY. They were about 20 seconds or so into...
