If you don't mind, could you say what problems exactly are making your
life a hell?  Surely it is not simply the visual field defect.  A
visual field defect (field cut) can be easily compensated for; if,
however, it is left "visual neglect" this is sometimes difficult to
deal with.  Perhaps there are other problems?

We are still a long way off from practical applications of the research
on neural healing, but right noow, today, there is much help to be had
from people skilled in applicatioon of "cognitive remediation" or
"cognitive rehabilitation" (I know first hand; it is an important
aspect of work at my hospital, for people with head trauma, brain
surgery, stroke, etc.).

There are some very good nerologists and neuropsychologists in Italy;
even those who are not involved in remediation may be able to refer you
to those that are.
