Children of women who during pregnancy consumed alcohol regularly may already at the age of six months have poorer vision.

But previous studies have shown that prenatal exposure to alcohol leads to difficulties in physical and mental development of the child. Because it is not known what amount of alcohol increase the risk for development of the fetus, pregnant women and women who might become pregnant should avoid alcohol.

The new research was conducted by American scientists from Children's Hospital in Boston. It turned out that the amount of alcohol he consumed 131 respondents was proportionally related to the formation of poor vision in their babies.

The children of women who consumed alcohol during pregnancy had an average of three times more likely to have poorer vision. Researchers results explain the damage that alcohol causes the retina of the eye and the brain related to vision.
