Accommodation in cerebral palsy: function and remediation

J Am Optom Assoc. 1984 Apr;55(4):281-3.

Abstract

Accommodation function, in a population of severely involved cerebral palsied children, is significantly lowered or absent. This observation suggests that lowered amplitudes and accommodation facility could be part of the cerebral palsy syndrome and untrainable . This paper looks at the accommodative function and the results of vision training on such a population.
