  • Medical Journal Article Citations About Retina Damage in ShakenBaby Syndrome

    There are several citations dealing with retinal and ocular damage
    due to shaken babies. These citations are listed below your original
    question. I hope this information helps you.

    We are hearing more and more cases surfacing involving Shaken Baby Syndrome
    or Shaken Baby/Impact Syndrome. One of the symptoms of SBS is deep retinal
    hemorhaging. Many say this hemorhaging is a result of the infants eyes
    slamming against the sockets during the shaking period. Others say that it
    is impossible for the eyes to move in the sockets like that. What is the
    truth? Do an infants eyes have the ability to slam against the sockets
    during shaking, or do they not? Any information would be greatly appreciated.
