Preschool Vision Screening

unknown

Proactive, Preventative, Proven!

Beyond good eye health, high-quality vision screenings during the routine well child visit can also help prevent learning difficulties, emotional issues, neurological problems and developmental delays. As a children’s health care provider, your role is vital in assuring that they all have access to high-quality vision screening.

The Ohio AAP, partnering with Prevent Blindness Ohio and the Ohio Department of Health, is offering a newly-formatted Preschool Vision Screening (PVS) program. The program offers tools and technical assistance to support practices in providing age- and developmentally-appropriate vision screening for 3-5 year-old preschool children. PVS now features ONLINE and ON-DEMAND resources, saving physician and staff time, with learning as your schedules permit!
