Peripheral vision loss (tunnel vision): Causes, risks and treatments
Peripheral vision is what is seen on the side by your eye when you are looking straight ahead, and peripheral vision loss—tunnel vision—can be very difficult to cope with.
Peripheral vision loss is the deterioration of your normal wide-angle field of vision. When someone loses peripheral vision in all directions, it is usually called tunnel vision. Tunnel vision can be attributed to damage to the optic nerve, to the retina, or to areas of the brain that process visual input.
If you research what peripheral vision loss is, you will likely discover a number of causes, but the most common information that will pop up will be about glaucoma peripheral vision loss. While this can be life altering, there are also situations where loss of peripheral vision is temporary. For example, there are some people who experience migraine headaches and report that they have temporary tunnel vision.
