Presentation Description : Infants must be able to detect and resolve visual stimuli in order to see them. Critical immaturities that limit infant visual sensitivity and acuity limit the ability of infants to perform other visual tasks. This presentation will describe the visual sensitivity and visual acuity of human infants starting at pre-term or full-term birth. The impact of the limitations imposed by infant visual sensitivity and acuity on typical and atypical infant visual performance will be discussed.

This is an abstract that was submitted for the 2016 ARVO Annual Meeting, held in Seattle, Wash., May 1-5, 2016.
