Vision screening & how it works?

The purpose of vision screening is to empower health care providers to detect the most prevalent vision disorders in children as early as possible. The earlier a vision disorder is detected, the better the success rate of treatment.

The plusoptiX vision screening devices provide reliable measurement values of:

  • Refraction (spherical equivalent)
  • Pupil diameter and pupil distance
  • Symmetry of corneal reflexes

With these measurement values, it is possible to detect the most prevalent childhood vision disorders that may lead to the development of amblyopia (lazy eye). These include:

  • Hyperopia (farsightedness)
  • Myopia (nearsightedness)
  • Astigmatism (blurred vision)
  • Anisometropia (unequal refractive power)
  • Anisocoria (unequal pupil size)
  • Strabismus (eye misalignment)
