Peripheral Vision Problems

Sudden loss of peripheral vision may be a symptom of stroke. People with limited peripheral vision lack ability to see to the side and are forced to turn their eyes, or even their entire heads to see what is not directly in front of them. Some common causes for peripheral vision loss are:



Retinitis pigmentosa
