Field Expanding Glasses - The Peli Lens TM
Hemianopsia is a debilitating visual condition that affects roughly 1 in 3 stroke patients. To the patient, it’s as if one side of their visual field simply disappears.

There is also a patented oblique configuration available that may make it possible to drive. However, driving depends on your state’s laws.
