Cortical Blindness and CVI

Last edited by Colin Abercrombie 2 years ago

Cortical blindness is a condition in which there is profound damage to the back of the brain which is responsible for vision, i.e. the occipital cortex and the visual pathways from the eyes leading to it . Profound Visual Impairment is the result, but this may be accompanied by apparent intermittent ability to detect movement, or "Blindsight", usually from the side.
