Hello there
in these cases, formal visual field tests can be done to help confirm the diagnosis of cortical blindness (that caused by a stroke). With some objective findings, whoever feels confortable with making the diagnosis can do so,however typically ophthalmologists are more likely to make the diagnosis and sign disability forms and so on, I wish you well, Dr. Stevens
