Low Vision as result of Stroke Damage

Please advise if I could use any device so I can renew my Driver's License. My eyes are physcially normal, with 20/20 vision and no need for glasses. However, due to a stroke (10 years ago at age 31) I have permanent damage to the vision center in my brain and can only see 96/120 in my right eye and 73/120 in my left eye and have limited right side peripheral vision. I can detect movement on my right side but cannot tell what the object is. I drove without problem for five years after my stroke, and then one day I saw a doctor who did a manual vision test and he reported me to the MOT and my licence was immediately suspended. The MOT asked for further tests and they show the vision deficit as the upper right quarter is almost all black with a few hits at the center and along the horizontal line on the upper right side. I live near London, Ontario, Canada. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
