Photoscreening is a pediatric vision screening technique wherein a camera and flash are used to determine refractive errors and identify risk factors for amblyopia.1
A photoscreener detects amblyopic risk factors such as hyperopia, myopia, and anisometropia and estimates their severity.Read More...
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) now recommends photoscreening beginning at ages 1-3.2
If a child is measured as having a high risk for amblyopia, they should be referred to a pediatric ophthalmologist or optometrist so they can be tested directly for amblyopia and receive proper treatment.
Only screens that present risk factors in accordance with the American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus (AAPOS) 2013 guidelines for referral threshold are identified as risks.1
Dr. Sean Donahue, chief of pediatric ophthalmology at Vanderbilt University, summarizes photoscreening well:
“The advent of photoscreening technology provides a mechanism to be used in conjunction with or to supplant traditional ocular examinations with eye charts to detect the risk factors for amblyopia and other treatable refractive errors.
Photoscreening provides a means to perform a quicker and more efficient vision screening than traditional methods.
The availability of handheld photoscreening devices, such as GoCheck Kids, significantly improves the portability, accessibility, and affordability of such devices.”3
Photoscreening is now a standard of pediatric care. At GoCheck Kids, we now have over 4,500 pediatricians using our photoscreener to detect amblyopia risk factors in children too young for a visual acuity test.
Our customers range from pediatric offices in almost every state to large medical groups spanning multiple states or regions.
“In our primary care practices, we’ve found that when we bring together clinical quality and advanced technology, we can deliver state-of-the-art healthcare more efficiently to reduce friction and create a better patient care experience. GoCheck Kids is doing that with a solution that provides exceptional clinical results with a high return on investment.”
