The interneurones convey the signals to the ganglion cellsin a spatia-temporal sequence related to the location of the signalling photoreceptor and the intensity of the stimulus. By this mechanism, the retinal signal is transformed into something that the cortex can use to interpret contrast and changing intensity (Tesser-Lavigne 2000). Obviously, focusing the light precisely on the retina is of the utmost importance in this process. When the lens and cornea are unable to effectively focus light, the signals are affected and we perceive a blurred image.

The major diseases affecting the central nervous system involve ischaemic, metabolic and degenerative processes. The most common factors affecting the central nervous system in children include cerebral insults such as cerebral palsy. Postural instability may result from ischaemic insult to areas involved with proprioception, balance or motor coordination. Altered metabolism and absorption rates in the very young mean that pharmaceuticals causing minimal side-effects in middle-aged people may produce clinically significant side-effects in this population.

In a child with an esotrophia or exotrophia (an eye that deviates) to the extent that a double image is created, the brain will shut off the signal from the deviant eye. Cells in the visual cortex receiving signals from the photoreceptors of the deviant eye will be deprived of stimulation and will not develop. Although the eye, the retina and the nerves may be functional, the visual cortex cannot interpret the signal coming from that eye. This is referred to as cortical blindness. There is a window of opportunity during which amblyopia, or cortical blindness, can be reversed.
