Can Brain Lesion Cause Peripheral Vision Loss
When you look at someone's face, you can still see their hand, even though you are not looking directly at it. When you are walking through a doorway, you are not looking at the sides, or looking directly at the threshold, but you see it through your peripheral vision. Anything outside of your direct focus spot, is considered peripheral. Which can be measured ...Read more

My girlfriend is 18 and in the past year has had peripheral vision loss in both left sides of both eyes. Not glaucoma. Wat Causes that aren't serious?
Early stage glaucoma & moderate stage epiretinal membrane same eye not affecting vision much now. W/both diseases potential for central vision loss & peripheral vision loss causes anxiety. Prognosis?
The risk is very low: An epiretinal membrane is a common finding in 60 y/o female and typically remain visually insignificant. If it becomes visually significant, surgical treatment is very successful. Mild glaucoma is very treatable, and with appropriate followup and treatment, peripheral vision loss can be prevented. Central loss is extremely rare. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: On the amount of peripheral vision loss. A visual field is performed to detect the amount of binocular horizontal visual field. For example, some rules require it to be at least 20 degrees to drive. Driving safely with reduced peripheral vision means turning your head always in the direction you want to look. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Visual field test result normal - 3/14 fixation error. Some peripheral vision loss not in field of vision. Why does test result say normal?
Glaucoma 30 percent optic damage in 58 year old. What is prognosis? Can progression be stopped so that I won't notice peripheral vision loss.
Is it common for there to not have been an improvement in optic neuritis induced peripheral vision loss after 8 weeks? Will recovery be spontaneous?
Recovery takes time: The visual recovery after optic neuritis can take weeks to months. Studies have found that at a year 90% of people had 20/40 vision or better. The recovery of peripheral vision is similar. The use of high dose IV steroids at the time of the optic neuritis might speed visual recovery, but the final vision is the same. It is important to be followed by a neurologist and an ophthalmologist for this. ...Read more
Can you tell me about peripheral vision, however are vertical or horizontal prisms used for peripheral vision loss?
For motion detection: Central (macular) vision detects fine detail and colors. Peripheral vision has poor resolution but is highly sensitive to motion - it is your warning sensor for possible threats out of the center. Prisms affect both central and peripheral vision at the same time, so no prism will only change peripheral vision. Prisms are used to compensate for doubling; not a peripheral issue. ...Read more
Loss of vision reflects the inability to perceive images. Such a phenotype can be due to occlusive or barriers to light (e.g. cataracts) through retinal alterations (e.g. wet macular degeneration) to optic nerve lesions (e.g. from a pituitary adenoma) to central nervous system ...Read more
