Fixation disorders in children with strabismus, cerebral palsy and epilepsy

, and . Klin Monatsbl Augenheilkd 192 (2): 97--102 (February 1988)


Seventy-five handicapped children with a severe deficiency of the fixation reflex are discussed. Fixation is never foveolar; instead, unsteady peripheral wandering is typical. Such children show large wandering deviations of the eyes. Vision is severely impaired and strabismus is present. The clinical picture is quite unmistakable and immediately suggests an underlying cerebral palsy with epilepsy. The findings and the consequences are discussed.
