Vision Test / SPOT Screening

We utilize two types of vision screen tests.

SPOT Vision Screening

SPOT is a fast, portable, easy to use vision screening system designed to quickly detect several ophthalmological issues in children, with an emphasis on identifying amblyopic risk factors. The non-invasive screening detects the potential indication of the following in seconds:

  • Anisometropia: Difference in Eye Strength
  • Anisocoria: Pupil size Deviations
  • Astigmatism: Blurred Vision, Eye Structure
  • Hyperopia: Farsightedness
  • Myopia: Nearsightedness
  • Strabismus: Eye Turns

Children can be screened as young as 6 months. The automated screening provides thorough, objective results in seconds. SPOT screening clearly indicates whether the child needs to be referred to an eye care specialist.

Accuracy

SPOT has proven to be an effective tool for use by pediatric practices and schools. Many eye care professionals have acquired SPOT to be used in their practices as a pre-exam tool.

The American Academy of Pediatrics states “Instrument-based screening is quick, requires minimal cooperation of the child, and is especially useful in the preverbal, preliterate, or developmentally delayed child. Children younger than 4 years can benefit from instrument-based screening, and visual acuity testing can be used reliably in older children”.

Vision Test for Older Children

Vision test: For children 3 years and older, we utilize picture or letter charts to evaluate their vision activity.
