Cerebral visual impairment has gained importance due to increased survival of extremely premature babies. It encompasses visual processing dysfunctions due to disorders of the retrochiasmal pathways and visual association areas. This review describes the physiology of visual processing, clinical approach to children with Cerebral Visual Impairment, and principles of intervention. Functional vision assessment and vision intervention strategies are given emphasis. We have to ensure that these children are able to use vision for learning, for social interaction, and mobility. A literature review was undertaken using Medline and PubMed.
