Disruptive Students May Not Be Able to See Their Problem

The normal procedure for students found squinting in class is to send them to the school nurse's office for a vision test using an eye chart.  With only a 60 percent accuracy rate, this would not identify all of the students with vision issues.  It wasn't until the recent introduction of the revolutionary Spot vision screener, which has a high rate of accuracy that school nurses can count on getting a quick and accurate reading for all the students.

"The eye chart takes quite a bit of time, just trying to get the student situated and then going through the procedure, which can be confusing for them," said Michelle Ron, the school nurse at Spirit Elementary in Deltona, Florida. "The Spot vision screener is wonderful! It's quick, accurate and they don't have to answer questions. Spot will benefit the school because it saves time and money."

Many schools are learning about Spot through vision screenings conducted by organizations like Florida VisionQuest or Lions Clubs.  Haynes has personally witnessed the important contribution Spot is making, identifying students with vision issues.

"Using Spot, it literally takes just seconds to do a screening," said Haynes.  "Kids are so amazed at how fast it is.  They are expecting the big E chart with me asking them questions. They sit down and within a few seconds, they are done."

Academic Achievement

Haynes says principals love having VisionQuest come in to do screenings with Spot, because it is quick, accurate and provides little disruption to their class day.

"We have been fortunate to have gone through the cycle twice with the Spot screening," said Spirit Elementary principal, Brandy Hogue, whose school was one of the first to see Spot in action. "Two years ago, our school was a B school. Last year, our students were screened with Spot and those students who failed received a full eye exam from Florida VisionQuest
