Pediatric vision screening

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

• On the basis of expert consensus as well as prospective cohort research, routine vision screening decreases the incidence of vision loss in early childhood. (3) • Based on consensus, the most important aspects of a provider-based vision screening are red reflex testing, external examination of lids and adnexa, ocular motility, and visual acuity testing. • Based on some research evidence as well as consensus, instrument-based vision screening can be used to reliably evaluate vision in children. (10) • Referral to an eye care provider is indicated if a patient does not pass a component of the vision screen or when further diagnostic and management recommendations are required.
