Here in the psychology department at Durham University we have been investigating homonymous visual field defects and have been developing training programs that may be used in the rehabilitation of such impairments. The aim of our training is not to try and restore the lost vision but rather to help people to learn compensatory strategies to help them overcome the difficulties which they experience due to the visual deficit.
