Eye Exams for Kids
One in every four children have a vision issue that could affect learning; and school vision screenings are not always the answer.
Vision screening programs are intended to identify children or adults who may have undetected vision problems. If the screening indicates a vision problem, they are referred for further evaluation.
However, a vision screening can’t be relied on to provide the same results as a comprehensive eye and vision examination.
Vision screenings are completed with limited testing equipment, personnel not trained to asses eyes, and they can give a false sense of “passing” when in reality the child may have issues that need to be addressed.
