    Yes, it is normal to get blurred vision from a stroke. Stroke is related to many a vision problem. As we know, the right side of our brain will be damaged if we are afflicted by a stroke. And if the right side f our brain is damaged, the visual pathways of the eye will be impacted and may result in eye problems, blurred vision included. And of cause blurred vision can also be caused by a lot of other physical problems. The most common cause is myopia, astigmatism or hyperopia, which makes your vision blurry and can't focus on things. Chronic dry eyes, pregnancy, ocular migraines and eye floaters are all very possible causes of blurred vision as well.

    It is true that stroke leads blurred vision. Stroke can cause blurriness by affecting the right side of the brain. It has destructive impact on the visual pathways of the eye, the result of the damage results in visual field loss, blurry vision, double vision and moving images. Stroke can also damage the areas of brain which processes the image we perceive, the result of which is "visual neglect" and disability to judge movement. In some cases, stroke can cause whole sections of visual field to be lost, namely blindness

    Blurred vision can affect one or both eyes, which means you may suffer vision problems, even blindness. Some causes are already stated: myopia, presbyopia, eye condition, dry eye and cataracts. Some medicines side effects also can caused blurred vision. Well, a stroke, or cerebrovascular accident (CVA), is the rapid loss of brain function due to disturbance in the blood supply to the brain. Stroke is easy to lead to blurred vision. If blood cannot be provided enough for eyes, eyesight problems will occur gradually. So keep in mind that any change in vision should always be evaluated by a medical professional.
