What is the treatment for cortical blindness?

What is the treatment for cortical blindness?

Generally none: Cortical blindness results from failure of the brain interconnections to the visual cortex to develop, or damage directly to the cortex from injury and vascular catastrophe. No treatment is possible. Such persons should be entered into programs for the blind and poorly sighted to develop alternate means of coping. ...Read more

Blindness (Definition)

Vision impairment and blindness are conditions in which a person cannot see well or see at all, even with glasses or contact lenses. If a person's best vision (with correction) out of either eye is only 20/70 - 20/200, he is impaired. If he can see no better than 20/200 or his visual field is no more than 20 degrees (severe "tunnel" vision), ...Read more

Is there any treatment advances for cortical blindness due to seizures?

Is there any treatment advances for cortical blindness due to seizures?

Need clarity: Am not clear as to whether you have permanent cortical blindness, or episodic associated with seizure activity. If the former, this could represent permanency, but if paroxysmal, better seizure control is very probable, especially with newer medications, and potentially, a Vagal Nerve Stimulator unit. ...Read more

Can pres cause permanent cortical blindness?

Can pres cause permanent cortical blindness?

Usually reversible: Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (pres) is a syndrome characterized by headache, confusion, seizures and visual loss. There have been reported cases presenting with cortical blindness with near or complete recovery of vision. There are many implicated causes, including ecclampsia, malignant hypertension, tacrolimus and Cyclosporine use, hypercalcemia. Treatment depends on the cause. ...Read more

Hi doctors, can you tell me what is post-traumatic transistent cortical blindness?

Cortical Blindness: The term refers to a lesion in the occipital cortex of the brain which causes blindness, and implies no damage to the visual apparatus. Post- traumatic means that it is due to a trauma, most likely to the head, which caused the problem. Transient means that is not permanent, and it lasts only for a short period of time. ...Read more

Could someone get monocular cortical blindness from getting punched/slapped in the head?

Could someone get monocular cortical blindness from getting punched/slapped in the head?

L/R Hemifield: Monocular vision loss is not cortical, but the right (or left) side of the visual field can be impaired (hemianopsia or quadrantanopsia) from a cortical lesion in the occipital lobe of the brain. Physical trauma can be the cause of such brain damage, and in a child would be suggestive of abuse. A CT/MRI is the next test to correlate the visual field with the anatomy. ...Read more

Doctors, do you think I can develop cortical blindness from holding my breath for too long?

No: You would faint doing this prior to any damage to your brain. Why would you try this anyway unless you have a fetish involvement in breath control which is in fact a dangerous activity.? ...Read more
