Ocular Manifestations of Child Abuse



Ophthalmic manifestations of child abuse can be seen in the form of physical abuse, neglect and noncompliance, sexual abuse, and emotional abuse. This chapter reviews these forms of abuse and their ocular manifestations. Ophthalmologists are a key component of the multidisciplinary team and may be the first to recognize abuse and neglect or act as consultants describing the ocular findings and their forensic significance.
