Best practice information

National Center for Children’s Vision and Eye Health at Prevent Blindness Recommendations

Across the United States, vision screening consistency and surveillance standards are in need of improvement. Therefore, a panel of experts from around the country have worked together to develop evidence based recommendations for Children’s Vision and Eye Health Systems. These experts have focused on children 36 to 72 months old (3-5 years old). The Maternal and Child Health Bureau provided funding to Prevent Blindness, with a mission “to develop a coordinated public health infrastructure to promote and ensure a comprehensive, multi-tiered continuum of vision care for young children.”  Below are the links to three publications made public in December 2014 that provide guidance to screening programs across the country:

  1. Vision Screening for Children 36 to <72 Months: Recommended Practices
  2. Vision and Eye Health in Children 36 to <72 Months: Proposed Data System
  3. Vision and Eye Health in Children 36 to <72 Months: Proposed Data Definitions
