Abstract

Over the past few years there have been considerable advances in our understanding of the normal development of vision and in our ability to detect and measure visual impairment in early childhood. It was appropriate, therefore, that a workshop, sponsored by the European Communities, should be held on the "Detection and Measurement of Visual Impairment in Pre-verbal Children". This workshop, which was held at the Institute of Ophthalmology, London, between 1 and 3 April 1985, brought together visual physiologists and ophthalmologists who exchanged and discussed ideas of mutual interest. After an introductory session when the normal development of vision and the causes of visual impairment were reviewed, there were sessions devoted to the theoretical aspects of electrophysiological and psychophysical tests, the measurement of visual acuity in preverbal children, the measurement of other visual functions, and visual screening of preverbal children.
