Hi, I'm a 17 year old and I recently suffered an AVM hemorrhage and it affected my vision to a 90 degree cut off (synonymous) has it ever been known to recover fully to 180 degrees?, even 120 so i can drive.

FYI, i do see some things on the left but cant notice what it is, it must just be dots.

I'm young so they're not sure..

Any thoughts? Thanks

Autocorrect must have changed homonymous hemianopia to synonymous

By the way, if their are any sort of exercises that can help please let me know.

In 37 years of practice in Kansas City which involves hundreds of thousands of patients I have seen only one go away completely after a stroke. It was the mother of a local physician. The hundreds and hundreds of others: HHA often improes but doesn't go away; the person learns to function better.

There is a controversial treatment called NovaVision  http://www.novavision.com/   Some researchers think it works; others think it doesn't. It is not uniformaly available. The last time I checked patients from Kansas CIty had to go to Omaha to find a physician trained in this system.

Certain types of prism glasses are said to help some (not make it go away just improve seeing in dark areas.
