Failed Vision Screening
Vision screenings are performed throughout childhood, and are the primary method of identifying children with visual impairment or possible eye conditions which may lead to vision loss. Vision screenings use age-appropriate methods to screen a child’s vision, and are often performed by pediatricians, nurses, and volunteer groups. If any abnormalities are found a referral can be provided which allows for prompt diagnosis and treatment.
If you are questioning the results of your child’s vision screening, thinking maybe your child wasn’t paying attention or perhaps not taking the vision screening seriously, please make an appointment with an eye care professional. Prompt, accurate diagnosis and treatment is extremely important to successful treatment. Delaying treatment can cause significant delays in visual improvement and overall success.
