Clinics in Developmental Medicine No.186

The increased awareness of cerebral visual impairment in children, combined with improved recognition of its wide ranging manifestations, has led to its recognition as the most common cause of visual impairment in children in the developed world. Yet the subject is in its infancy, with very little published to date. Information on this complex topic has been needed by all disciplines working with disabled children for many years.

This ambitious book links the work of authors from many of the major research teams in this field, who have made significant contributions to the literature on the subject of cerebral visual impairment and provide a structured amalgam of the viewpoints of different specialists.  The book contains some very novel concepts, which will be of great practical value to those who care for children with visual impairment due to brain injury. Summaries of the more specialist chapters as well as clear diagrams and a glossary have been provided to increase the books accessibility to a broader readership.

This is an exciting and important field, to which this book makes a major contribution.

Review Text

  • By sirkkis on 9 April 2011

    The subject is very important, difficult and not very familiar in general clinical praxis. The book contains an excellent and thoroughly written description over the influence of brain lesions on vision development and functional disorders in children with brain lesions. It is a valuable practical tool for pediatric ophthalmologists, pediatric neurologists and specialists at pediatric rehabilitation clinics.

    It is with the greatest pleasure that I welcome this volume on visual impairment focusing on the part played by the brain and emphasizing functional vision. As it deals with matters that we cannot reproduce in our own minds as experiences, it is so hard to understand what this seeing in a different way is all about. As we get more and more children with such properties and try harder and harder to find an understanding, this book helps us to look at these phenomena. Another important aspect is that it deals with properties which are still debatably (by some) called visual impairment. Neurology and ophthalmology can now coexist actively side by side. Each has a different point of view to the same problems: from the point of view of visual information not finding its way to the places it should go is certainly a matter that concerns ophthalmology, but at the same time it has to do with coping with the information received in a different way to what we are accustomed to.Antero Perttunen, Low Vision Therapist, Jyväskylä, Finland
