It depends on the type of screening. Vision screenings with an eye chart are generally ineffective at detecting farsightedness, according to the American Optometric Association, since farsighted individuals can normally identify the letters on an eye chart without much difficulty. However, if the screening is performed with a photoscreener or other instrument, such as the iScreen Vision photoscreener, however, farsightedness frequently can be detected. Because no verbal response from the child is necessary, these types of pediatric vision screenings or vision tests can be performed even when the child is very young or preverbal.
