Visual Acuity 101: Uncover vision disorders before eyes stop growing
One in four children has a vision problem. Since treatment efficacy declines as we age, early detection and treatment are critical. Left untreated, kids can experience many challenges, including blindness.
7 Screenings Every Pediatrician Should Be Doing
Annual wellness visits are essential for children and adults to live happy, healthy lives. Screenings are an invaluable part of these check-ups. They detect potential health problems that can be corrected or treated if found early. There are seven evidence-based screenings that every pediatrician should be familiar with and implement. Through these specific screenings, pediatricians can diagnose, treat, or rule out potential health problems that could be irreversible later.
Amblyopia 101: A Brief History
A brief history of amblyopia: defining it, detecting it & treating it Have you ever wondered when amblyopia was first identified? Or when vision screening began? I have. I’m not a historian, but the topic interests me, and I wanted to learn more to help put the work we’re doing today in context.
Compare The Leading Pediatric Vision Screeners
The Top Photoscreeners: Which One Is Right for You? Are you considering a photoscreener for your pediatric practice? Early detection and treatment of vision problems are critical in order to help prevent permanent vision loss, and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) now recommends photoscreening for children aged 12 months-5 years.1
Great Catches: The Value of Early and Routine Vision Screening
Early vision screening is fundamental, but screening your patient’s early and routinely is critical in detecting amblyopia risk factors that may cause childhood blindness. Vision often changes as children develop. By photoscreening and testing visual acuity throughout childhood—starting at age 1 per the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP)— you’ll help detect vision issues and prevent permanent vision loss in your young patients.1
