|This slide is an example of a left hemianopsia. In the left side of the visual field, it would have the greatest impact on one's mobility. Much like cars or traffic in the United States, we walk on the right side; with the left field being restricted, we would not see objects or people on our left side and would probably need a cane to assist in travel. It would also cause greater difficulty in reading as we progress left to right which would require going back through the blind spot in returning to the next line. Sometimes a person may actually invert the print vertically within the good visual field so that they would gain field and avoid the blind spot.|
