Abstract

In the 2004 Bowman Lecture, I give a panegyric for Sir William Bowman, an estimate of the importance and the epidemiology of anterior visual pathway developmental disorders, followed by a history of the anterior visual system. I review the normal development of the optic nerve and chiasm and the main developmental disorders: Optic Nerve Aplasia, Optic Nerve Hypoplasia and Achiasmia.
