Comparison of Vision Screening by the Modified Telebinocular Technique and the Modified Clinical Technique.
Walton, Howard N.; And Others
This paper reports an investigation of the effectiveness of vision screening by the Modified Telebinocular Technique (MTT) when compared to the more cumbersome but highly valid and reliable Modified Clinical Technique (MCT). Data on 102 school children were collected using the MCT. The same children were then given the MTT to establish comparison data for the various visual anomalies that can be detected by the MCT. The data showed an agreement of 89.2 percent between the two tests (75.5 percent agreement on the number of passes, 13.7 percent agreement on failures, and 10.8 percent were mutually ambiguous). A statistical analysis of the data demonstrated a significance of greater than the .01 percent level of confidence, indicating that the MTT vision screening procedure will provide results which are comparable to the MCT.
