It depends on the type of pediatric vision screening whether or not a cataract will be detected. If vision screening is performed only with a traditional eye chart, then cataracts may not be detected unless the child’s vision is impacted enough that their visual acuity is impacted enough to be discovered by the vision screening. However, cataracts frequently will show up on the digital images captured by screening instruments such as the iScreen Vision Screener 3000 photoscreener. This type of screening is often referred to as Cataract Vision screening, Cataract Vision Testing, Pediatric Cataract Vision Screening, or Pediatric Cataract Vision Testing.
