Homonymous Hemianopsia

Abstract
Homonymous hemianopsia (or homonymous hemianopia, HH) is a field loss deficit in the same halves of the visual field of each eye. This condition most commonly results from stroke for adults, or tumors/lesions for patients under the age of 18.[1] Often, the cause of HH is located at the occipital lobe, followed by an injury to the optic radiations or optic tract.[1] HH can also be characterized as contralateral hemianopsia (unilateral involvement at the optic tract, lateral geniculate nucleus, optic radiations, or occipital cortex opposite to the side of field loss) in contrast to bitemporal hemianopsia (involvement at the optic chiasm).
