There is a broad collection of anomalies now known as congenital Zika syndrome (CZS). Some of the most serious are ophthalmologic. Two articles evaluated visual function among infants with suspected and confirmed CZS.

Thus, cortical visual impairment might be the most common cause of blindness among children with CZS.
