Abstract or Summary
  • The Oregon Department of Education requires children to receive vision screening before entering elementary school, but does not require follow-up with an eye care professional after a failed screening. Whether such preventative vision care is effective at detecting children with vision problems was investigated through research from the American Optometric Association and similar resources. Oregon optometrists were also surveyed to obtain their opinions regarding the present state of preventative vision care in Oregon children. Results from the survey and published data concluded that an unmet need exists for preventative vision care in Oregon, specifically the need for comprehensive vision exams.
