Abstract

Nonorganic vision loss (NOVL) is a relatively common condition in pediatric patients. Prompt diagnosis can prevent costly, time-consuming, and frustrating workups. It is valuable for general practitioners and specialists alike to include NOVL in their differential when evaluating patients with visual complaints that are inconsistent with normal examination findings.
