• Is vision screening for children mandated by law? At what ages and frequency?
  • Who is doing the vision screening? Who trains the vision screeners? Are there certification or training requirements for screeners?
  • Are the results of vision screening and eye examination outcomes communicated to the child’s medical home/primary health care provider?
  • Is there a standard protocol for referrals? Who follows up to ensure referred children access needed eye care? Is this follow-up process/protocol in place for all children, or only segments of the state’s population?
  • Are there populations that are being missed, are unable to access eye care, or need special considerations?
  • What percentage of children ages 3 through 5 years receive a vision screening or eye examination?
  • Who monitors the quality of vision screening programs?
  • Who maintains the data on children’s vision in your state? Is there any statewide tracking of vision screening and follow-up? If so, does it integrate systems, sites, and providers to support population-based (all children) data?
