The recorded prevalence of 6 to 14 year-old children with severe visual handicap was 0.43 per 1000 in Hungary, 1983/84. The territorial distribution showed significant difference in prevalences, the highest figures were found in two entities with three special institutions for severely visually handicapped children. Thus, the recorded figures are underascertained and the estimated rates are 0.52-0.60 and 0.21 per 1000 for children with severe visual handicap and, within it, blindness, respectively.
