Abstract

Background/aim: The high prevalence of ophthalmologic pathologies in hearing-disabled subjects necessitates early screening of other sensory deficits, especially visual function. The aim of this study is to determine the frequency and clinical characteristics of ophthalmic pathologies in patients with congenital bilateral sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL).
