Frequently Asked Questions
iScreen Vision is specifically designed for pediatric vision screening and can be especially useful for children who are preverbal or developmentally challenged. Many eye tests for children simply test visual acuity, but iScreen Vision offers a thorough screening test for eye abnormalities that are risk factors for amblyopia, also known as “lazy eye.”
iScreen Vision’s photoscreening technology screens for major amblyopia risk factors that can lead to permanent vision loss or blindness if not detected early. iScreen Vision also screens for refractive error and other serious eye problems, including: anisometropia, astigmatism, cataract, coloboma, hyperopia, myopia, ptosis and strabismus.
Studies show that, on average, one in every four of your pediatric patients suffers from a vision problem — but only 36 percent of children aged six or younger have had their vision tested. With iScreen Vision, you can prevent permanent vision loss by detecting risk factors when treatment is most effective.
