Research study background:

Project title: Advanced Optometric Assessment Technology – Post-stroke Assessment and Rehabilitation

Post-stroke rehabilitation of perceptual vision changes requires validated tools. The aim of this project is to utilise a battery of vision tests that have already been developed by the project team in older participants who have experienced a stroke and a group of non-stroke comparison older participants. We aim to develop a large normative dataset, assess test-retest repeatability, and longitudinal test stability, and examine the association between test results and real-world outcomes including quality of life, number of falls and vision-related activities, in participants both with and without vision related problems.
