We Are Visionaries
And we see a future where children with cortical visual impairment (CVI) have visual access to the world around them.
A future with complete access to appropriate medical care, education, and intervention. The Pediatric Cortical Visual Impairment Society was created to advocate for children with CVI, heighten public awareness, and promote research and other activities that lead to improvement in vision care for children with CVI.
