Visual Impairment Secondary to Congenital Glaucoma in Children: Visual Responses, Optical Correction and Use of Low Vision Aids

Abstract: INTRODUCTIONCongenital glaucoma is frequently associated with visual impairment due to optic nerve damage, corneal opacities, cataracts and amblyopia. Poor vision in childhood is related to global developmental problems, and referral to vision habilitation/rehabilitation services should be without delay to promote efficient management of the impaired vision.OBJECTIVETo analyze data concerning visual response, the use of optical correction and prescribed low vision aids in a population of children with congenit… Show more
