The technique developed at Durham University - which could be delivered to people's mobile phones or games consoles - could help the 4,000 people each year who suffer from hemianopia
, in which people lose half of their visual field.

Washington, Nov 12 (ANI): Researchers have found that people suffering from hemianopia
face difficulty in detecting pedestrians while driving.
Severe cranial trauma can "split" the optic chiasm and produce a bitemporal hemianopia
. Penetrating cranial injuries can also damage more posterior structures along the afferent visual pathway, usually at the level of the occipital cortex.

Four patients had specific postoperative sequelae of partial hemianopia
, unilateral visual loss, or anosmia.
Patients with hemiparesis, homonymous hemianopia
and new disorders of higher cerebral dysfunction e.g.
02 OxSight Prism glasses are designed to help people with peripheral vision loss such as glaucoma, retinitis pigmentosa and homonymous hemianopia
(half-sided impairment of visual fields).
Our neurological evaluation revealed dysarthria, right side paresthesias, and left limbs ataxia in addition to right lateral homonymous hemianopia
that was secondary to the previous ischemic event.
