A study of vision in cerebral palsy

American Journal of Optometry and Physiological Optics
G P Lo Cascio


One hundred twenty-eight patients (most less than 13 years old) with various types of cerebral palsy were examined to assess visual acuity, refractive state, oculomotor functions, sensory fusion, and ocular health. Special procedures for examining these patients are described. Vision or ocular defects were found to be present in 86% of these cerebral palsy patients. Significant refractive errors and strabismus were the most common defects, being present in 50% or more of the patients. Ocular disease was relatively uncommon.

Birth defects encompass structural and functional alterations that occur during embryonic or fetal development and are present since birth. The cause may be genetic, environmental or unknown and can result in physical and/or mental impairment. Here is the latest research on birth defects.
