“If this problem was left undetected – by age seven [my daughter] would undoubtedly have lost virtually all vision in the eye…I hope other parents realize how fortunate they are to have “cutting edge” technology available for their children’s health.”

Easy and affordable, iScreen Vision can screen for amblyopia risk factors and other serious eye abnormalities…
iScreen Vision technology was created by a pediatric ophthalmologist and an engineer from the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command, with input from pediatricians across the country. Their collaborative work resulted in a ground-breaking digital device. Easy and affordable, iScreen Vision can screen for risk factors for amblyopia (commonly called “lazy eye”) and other serious eye abnormalities in children as young as one-year old. Studies show earlier diagnosis of vision problems can lead to more effective treatment and better patient outcomes.14
