    Hi there. I wish I could say I'd heard of it before. I haven't and wish you the best in your search for information. 

    Also, you could start a discussion by labeling it with this condition, and there's no telling how many people may respond to it.

    Thank you and God Bless~

    Hi there,

    Para central scotoma is a new term for me. Never heard it before. My stroke has affected my vision too. There is loss of clarity in my vision though it is not really very bad. I dont know if it is scotoma too. Wl ask my neuro about it. Thanks for the info. God bless!
