Product Details

Let’s bring better vision screening into focus.

Vision screening is essential for early detection and prevention of vision loss in young children. But for many schools and organizations, traditional screening methods eat up valuable time and resources. They can also miss up to 21% of school-age children who should be referred.4

That’s where the Welch Allyn Spot Vision Screener comes in. Now you can screen both eyes for six risk factors in just seconds, allowing for faster vision screening and higher completion rates.

“I performed a screening with the Welch Allyn Spot Vision Screener on a kindergarten student who was entering our school for the first time. The Spot Screener referred the student for anisometropia, which ended up being diagnosed by the ophthalmologist as amblyopia. Her mother came into my office, grateful for the vision referral sent home because she said that 'every year, her eyes were checked at the doctor's office with an eye chart and this was never picked up.”

Eileen Gavin, School Nurse
