In Reply.—I appreciate, and agree with, Dr Altman's comments. Careful ophthalmological care for children with spina bifida is warranted for the very reasons he mentions. Although we have access to excellent ophthalmological consultation, our team is not fortunate enough to have an ophthalmologist as a team member. Failure to mention this aspect of care was an oversight on my part.
