Refractive error and visual functions in children with special needs compared with the first grade school students in oman.

...Prevalence of uncorrected refractive error was much higher in children with special needs. Prevalence of strabismus, nystagmus, and reduced contrast sensitivity was also higher in children with special needs. Early vision screening, visual function assessment, correction of refractive error, and frequent follow-up are recommended....

Comment: Why are they recommending vision screening when time and again it has been shown that vision screenings are so poor researcher cannot even decide if there is enough good evidence to make a judgment about screening? This population deserves full comprehensive eye examinations. No screening. Full exams. This goes for all children no matter if they have a disability or not! DM
