The authors aimed to assess the oculomotor functions in children with spastic hemiplegia (SH) caused by different brain pathologies and evaluate the results obtained by the ocular motor score (OMS). The study included 34 children with a median age of 11 years. The OMS contains static and dynamic sections. The median total OMS for all children was 2.5 (1.3-5.8) and highest median OMS was seen in children with malformation brain pathology. The largest differences were seen in dynamic scores which emphasise the importance of oculomotor assessment.
