Default Blurred fundi for suggesting increased pressure?

The child's story is worrisome for shaken baby syndrome, in which the symptoms may not correlate with the physical findings. This diagnosis should be considered in any infant presenting with a dissonant history suspicious of child abuse. The child's fontanelles are full, indicative of increased intracranial pressure. A retinoscopic examination will indicate if this is indeed the case, since blurred fundi would suggest increased pressure.Could you explain thissS?????
