Causes of decreased visual acuity in preschool aged children

(April 10, 2013 - Insidermedicine)

From California – A new report published in Ophthalmology examines the causes of decreased visual acuity in preschool children. Researchers studied visual acuity in a mutli-ethnic group of children aged 30-72 months. Researchers defined decreased visual acuity as worse than 20/50 in those under 47 months, and worse than 20/40 in those over 48 months. Results showed 70% of all cases of decreased VA in both Asian and non-hispanic white children, and 90% of cases with decreased VA that had an identifiable cause, were due to a refractive error.
