Post # 2 Balint Syndrome

Balint syndrome is having the inability to look into the sides of one's visual field. The space where someone can see without moving the eyes is the visual field. Usually, the patient has a hard time seeing things on their visual field's right side. They have a hard time putting together the visual pieces. As an effect, they can only focus on individual details of what they see. They have difficulty in seeing more than one object at a time and also have difficulty in estimating the distance of what they see in the visual space.
