The purpose of this article is to help the pediatrician evaluate a child with visual difficulties. The pediatrician must decide whether the child needs referral for further neurologic or ophthalmologic evaluation. The authors will discuss the examination of such a child and interpretation of the various signs and symptoms that point to neurologic diseases. Detailed lists of the various neuro ophthalmic syndromes will not be given, since they have been well described elsewhere. Nor will strabismus or amblyopia be discussed to any extent.
