Solution for Pre-School Vision Screening

Did you know that 1 out of every 4 school age children has a vision issue? Yet, poor vision often goes undetected by physicians, parents and teachers.

Since 80% of what a child learns is visually acquired, these conditions negatively impact a child's ability to learn, to thrive and ultimately to succeed. PediaVision's® automated vision assessment solution can ensure that children are vision-ready for life and learning from as early as 6 months of age. The PediaVision® solution assists in ensuring children are vision-ready for life and learning by the early detection of refractive errors, amblyopia, strabismus, anisocoria and media opacities through automated vision screening.

The statistics tell the story. One out of every four children suffers from some vision problem, including 2.4 million children ages 0-4 and 5.3 million ages 6-11. More than 430,000 children have problems such as lazy eye (amblyopia) or eyes that are either crossed or turned outward (strabismus) that can cause permanent vision loss if left untreated. Many of these can be easily treated with glasses or patching to prevent permanent disability.

To prevent irreversible impairment or blindness, these and other vision problems must be detected and treated early, before the age of 8.
