Hemorraghic stroke

My mother, age 42, had a hemorraghic stroke about a year ago. She is recovering very well, and is expected to make a full recovery. However, the doctor said she has permanently lost her peripheral vision, impairing her ability to drive and get to work. She often cries and gets upset about this fact, and prays that there is a way she can get this vision back. My question is there any way possible (surgery, etc.) that my mother can get her peripheral vision back after a hemorraghic stroke? I would really appreciate a sincere, in-depth response from someone of medical status. Thank you very much.

My 82 year old Dad suffered the same - Doing well w/ exception of vision - I do not believe that there is any surgery for this - sometimes it spontaneously will come back.  This can happen up to 6 months after the stroke.  We are taking him to Oklahoma City to a neuro-opthamologist and will be talking to them about a vision restoration therapy by Novavision.  We have heard some good reports about this and some negative.  There is also the use of hyperbaric oxygen for stroke victims but I have not found out as much about this yet.  You can read more about this on the internet.  I am not speaking as a medical person-just a daughter that has done a lot of research and hoping as you are for something to help him.
