Vision screenings provide a critical bridge from detection to eye care for families that may not regularly access health or eye care services, may need financial assistance to afford care, or that may not fully understand the impact an undiagnosed and untreated vision problem might have on the rest of their child’s life.

This webinar does not consist of formal recommendations or protocols, but is meant to guide those charged with developing, implementing, and evaluating a vision-screening program for school-aged students. Viewing this presentation will equip you with a better understanding of childhood vision disorders, a road map for engaging your school-health center in a yearly vision screening program, the benefits of early detection, and a referral system for follow up care while creating better educational outcomes for those children.
