What is visual inattention?
If you experience a major neurological event such as an Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) – through a stroke, an injury to your head, or similar – you may experience a change in vision.
A change in vision that can be associated with an Acquired Brain Injury is called ‘visual inattention’.
If you have visual inattention, you may find it difficult to see everything at once. This usually becomes even more difficult if you’re tired, or if there is a lot to process visually. It can be difficult for you to know if you have visual inattention, because it might only affect you at certain times or in specific situations.
