An Analysis of Vision Screening in School Age Children.
Waigandt, Alex; And Others
In this report, vision screenings conducted by large metropolitan area schools are reviewed. Data were generated by 10 participating schools in five school districts who responded to five research questions: (1) Do you do vision screening? (2) What do you test for? (3) Who conducts the vision screening in your school? (4) What grade levels are screened? (5) How often are the children screened? In general, many inadequacies exist in schools regarding vision screening. Recommendations include greater participation in the public school arena by vision specialists and the development of a consistent criteria for vision screening in school districts. (Author/JD)
