Causes of Less vision or blind births 1
Posted in 2014

Some babies are born blind or with severe vision loss. This can be caused by many different things, including abnormalities in the development of the eye or injury to eye structures from things like prematurity related retinopathy or infections or by developmental problems or injury to the parts of the brain responsible for vision. Some of the factors placing an infant, toddler, or child at significant risk for visual impairment include:
  • Prematurity, low birth weight, needing to be treated with oxygen at birth, or bleeding in the brain
  • Family history of retinoblastoma, congenital cataracts, or metabolic or genetic disease
  • Infection of mother during pregnancy such as rubella, toxoplasmosis, cytomegalovirus, HIV, and some sexually transmitted infections including herpes, gonorrhea  and  chlamydia)
  • Problems with the central nervous system such as developmental delay, cerebral palsy, seizures, or hydrocephalus.
There are many causes of vision loss. Some cause more severe loss than others. One of the most common conditions is known as retinopathy of prematurity (ROP).
