Seventy children with cere­bral palsy were examined for aetiological factors responsible, type of disorder and ocular abnormalities. The overall inci­dence of ocular abnormalities was 68.69%, the highest frequency being of squint (35.7%). Other anomalies detected inclu­ded refractive errors (28.5%), optic atrophy (10%) and coloboma (2.9%). Most children were spastic quadriplegics with asphyxia as the major aetiological factor. The study created an awareness amongst parents of these children. The visual status of those affected could be improved for imparting education and training in a better way.
