Only an eye care professional, such as a pediatric ophthalmologist, can diagnose whether a child has amblyopia, but vision screening with a photoscreener, such as the iScreen Vision Screener 3000, can detect many of the eye problems or conditions that put a child at risk for amblyopia, also known as Amblyopia Risk Factors, or ARF. Amblyopia Risk Factors include severe refractive problems, alignment problems or media opacities such as cataracts. This type of pediatric vision screening or pediatric vision testing is referred to by many different names, including, Amblyopia Vision Screening, Amblyopia Vision Testing, Pediatric Amblyopia Vision Screening, Pediatric Amblyopia Vision Testing, Lazy Eye Vision Screening, or Lazy Eye Vision Testing.
