Cortical blindness is a type of blindness that is caused by damage to the brain, specifically the occipital (visual) cortex. This type of blindness can be temporary or permanent, depending on the cause of the damage. It is usually caused by stroke, most commonly involving the posterior cerebral artery. Symptoms of cortical blindness include difficulty seeing objects or people, confusion, and lack of coordination.
