Vision Screening Referral

If your child was recently screened at school by MEDARVA and failed the vision screening, this indicates a need for further evaluation by an eye doctor.  An eye doctor can determine a diagnosis and may recommend a treatment plan. If a problem is found and corrected, it may help your child do better in his or her school work.

Next Steps:

  • Make an appointment with an optometrist or ophthalmologist¬†
    • Vision impairments in children can occur for many reasons. Early treatment is crucial to prevent permanent vision loss. The eye doctor can determine if and what treatment needs to occur.
    • Make sure the provider you choose will see children. Bring your child’s vision screening results with you.
