Parents as Screeners for Strabismus in Their Children.
Rosner, J.; Rosner, J.
Journal of Visual Impairment and Blindness, v82 n5 p193-94 May 1988
Parents of 536 children (ages 3-71 months) were shown to be remarkably good detectors of strabismus. Ninety-three percent of the parental identifications of strabismus were accurate while 99 percent of the nonstrabismic judgments were accurate. Older children (above age 2) were identified more accurately than those under 1 year. (Author/VW)
