Scotoma is an area or impairment of visual acuity surrounded by a field of normal or relatively well-preserved vision. The person seems to see one or more "spots" in front of the eyes. The presence of the scotoma can be demonstrated subjectively by covering one eye, carefully holding fixation with the open eye, and placing an object (such as your thumb) in the lateral and horizontal visual field, about 15 degrees from fixation (see the blind spot article).

Causes: An unnatural blind spot (scotoma). existing on the retina is not transmitting any light through the optic nerve to the brain. When there is more than one blind spot, they are called scotomas.

Natural remedies for scotoma:
