3. Undetected Vision Loss
Nineteen million children have impaired vision, and many are underdiagnosed. In this chapter, four common pediatric vision diagnoses (strabismus, amblyopia, refractive errors, and cerebral vision impairment) are presented along with prevalence, common signs and symptoms, and intervention suggestions. The role of the pediatric therapist as part of a comprehensive team treating children with vision impairments is detailed.
