Visual disorders in children with brain lesions: 2. Visual impairment associated with cerebral palsy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Disorders of visual function are a common finding in children with cerebral palsy. In some cases they are secondary to ophthalmologic abnormalities such as cataract or retinopathy, but more often they are due to damage of the central visual pathway. We review the literature on the prevalence and distribution of visual abnormalities in children with cerebral palsy and their relation to cognitive, motor and emotional development.
