    Thank you for joining us today for our webinar, "Implementing an Evidence-Based Vision Screening Program -- Tools and Tips for All Ages!" This webinar is sponsored by the Office of Head Start National Center on Health and the National Center for Children's Vision and Eye Health at Prevent Blindness.   The vision screening manual is intended for use in conjunction with a vision screener training session conducted by a Department of State Health Services certified vision instructor. It provides information on standards for administration of preschool and school vision screening tests, appropriate referral criteria, and the necessary referral.

Amblyopic therapy was prescribed to children whose visual acuity (VA) .

and the National Association of School. The StEPS program offers all 4 and 5 year old children free vision screening. Children rarely complain of eye problems or don’t know that they can’t see well.

3D Vision Screening will test if your child has normal three-dimensional (3D) vision. Special patterned plates will be shown to him. If he is unable to pick out the right images, he may have a squint or other conditions, and will also be referred to the Refraction Clinic for further assessment.

Please note vision screening is not a substitute for a complete eye examination. Screening does, however, detect decreased visual acuity. A deviation in visual acuity between the two eyes may indicate eye problems that are correctable during a child’s early years.

Results of the vision screening are used to assess whether a child needs to see an eye doctor. Children who need a full eye exam are referred to an eye doctor of the parent's choice. Families in financial need are directed to local agencies. They may also qualify for Vision Service Plan's Sight for Students® program.
