Identifying barriers to follow-up eye care for children after failed vision screening in a primary care setting.

Identifying barriers to follow-up eye care for children after failed vision screening in a primary care setting.


.....Parental unawareness of a failed visual acuity screening is an important barrier to obtaining follow-up. Strategies to improve follow-up rates after a failed visual acuity screening may include communicating the results clearly and consistently, providing education about the importance of timely follow-up, and offering logistic support for accessing eye appointments to families......

Comments: The problem is not the barriers discussed above. The solution is not the pro-offered ones above. The ONLY solution is a full, comprehensive eye and vision examination for EVERY child. No screenings. Screenings have been shown not to do what they are supposed to do (search vision screening on this blog).
