Are school vision screenings enough?

School vision screenings are not enough and often give parents a false sense of security about the health of your child's vision and eye health. A comprehensive eye exam provides the full assurance of vision and eye health that a simple eye chart test or a school vision screening cannot. 

Eye diseases, many that can cause blindness, eye movement problems such as convergence insufficiency and binocular vision disorders, eye muscle control disorders and visual information processing deficits all go undetected in a rudimentary vision screening.  Many of these disorders can impact a child's school performance, their personality and their self esteem. Undiagnosed diseases can cause permanent vision loss.
