Diminished vision may be appreciated in terms of poor fIxation, inattention to small objects, failure of visual recognition of familiar objects or faces and the development of nystagmus or strabismus. Loss of vision in one eye may not be suspected at all until it deviates from the normal parallel position with its mate or when the good eye is inadvertently occluded and it becomes evident that the child cannot see.
