This Focal Points issue provides a comprehensive guide to treating the infant with visual impairment.
The cause of poor vision is straightforward in some cases: congenital cataracts, aniridia or microphthalmia. However, many infants present with less obvious disease features. This issue will help you make an accurate diagnosis.
Upon completion of this issue, you should be able to:
- Describe the milestones in the development of the infant’s vision
- Discuss the signs of abnormal vision in an infant
- Outline the causes of visual impairment in the infant
