Vision Screening Report Examples

Dept of Education Referral Process

The school nurse is responsible for coordinating and supervising the school vision screening program from beginning to end. Identifying students who may be at risk for vision impairments is just the first step in the school vision screening program. Symptoms related to vision problems can greatly affect a student’s ability to learn. In addition, low‐income minority youth are more likely to experience a disproportionately high prevalence of educationally relevant vision problems. Unfortunately, studies show that a large number of students who need glasses do not have them. For a screening program to be effective, school nurses must place an emphasis on the referral and follow‐up process.
