Vision Simulations

How can you explain to a spouse or caretaker what it’s like to read with hemianopia?  With vision that’s less distinct in one area of the visual field?




These and many other conditions are simulated nicely at  The site seems to have been set up to demonstrate what various visual anomalies look like.  The images on reading with hemianopia and on visual snow are particularly useful.  The site also notes that they supply images for courtroom use in cases involving expert witness testimony about damaged vision.  Interesting to note that one of the categories listed is strabismus surgery.  Which one of the simulations do you think relates to that?
