Down syndrome patients have characteristic ocular findings and associated problems and should have periodic ophthalmologic examinations. The ocular abnormalities of Down syndrome are, for the most part, amenable to treatment and significant visual loss should rarely occur in these patients. Early recognition and treatment will minimize added problems of visual deprivation and permit the patient with Down syndrome to function at his or her highest level of potential.
