Methodology:Total number of fifteen subjects participated in this study. The duration of the study was four continuous weeks, with five sittings of sixty minutes each per week. Data was collected using Timed Up and Go test and Berg balance scale. The statistical analysis used for the study was paired T- test and Wilcoxons signed rank test.
Result: Subjects with masked vision showed better outcomes on berg balance scale and Timed Up and Go test with P<0.001.
Conclusion: Balance performance and movement can be improved with deprived vision training on stroke subjects.
