The Vision defect in stroke screening tool helps medical and allied health professionals to identify and prioritise patients who require a comprehensive eye examination.
Stroke-related and pre-existing visual conditions may not be detected or factored into a patient's assessment and rehabilitation program. This can lead to reduced or poor progress in rehabilitation.
