In last years, thanks to the development in neonatology, the numbers of saved premature children with high co-morbidity are rapidly growing. Contrary to great advances in contemporary neonatology, the saved premature children are not spared different health’s problems in the future life, including the vision. The main cause remains the retinopathy of prematurity and neurological diseases. In the study the authors present first results of their examinations of visual functions in premature children at the school age comparing with the group of healthy, mature children of the same age.
