A Vision Screening is not an eye examination; however, it is a tool used to identify a potential vision problem. It can help discover eye defects early in children which may cause difficulty in their learning.
Students in grades K, 1, 3, and 6 are screened.
A student's visual accuity number is the last line read correctly (one more than half of the symbols / letters).
To pass the vision screening:
Students that fail the initial screening are re-screened by the OCHD Health Support Technician. This will be done on another day. If the student's re-screening confirms the initial screening results a referral for medical evaluation will be sent home.
