Loma Linda University Expands Vision Screening Program With Revolutionary New Screening Device, Spot
Date:9/29/2011

aid David Melnik, president and chief executive officer of PediaVision.  "Spot demonstrates how innovation can drive profound changes in communities around the country.  For the first time consistent and comprehensive vision screening is feasible on a global basis."

Vision Disability, Number One Health Issue

Nationwide, there is an on-going and urgent need for Spot.  The U. S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) state that vision disability is the single most prevalent disabling condition among children.  Approximately 80 percent(1) of what children learn in their early school years is visual, so if they can't see a teacher's writing on the blackboard, they will struggle.

The current standard for vision screening is primarily based on subjective analysis from a chart invented 149 years ago.  In parallel, vision problems rise as children get older.  For children 6 to 11 years old, an estimated 21.5 percent have a vision problem.  Older students 12-17 years old are estimated at 24 percent.(2)

In a recent study of the top seven health issues in schools, vision disability is priority number one.(3)  This clearly shows evidence that addressing the prevalence of visions disorders can improve student outcomes.  Statistics show an incredible need, the CDC states that less than 15 percent of all preschool children receive an eye exam and fewer than 22 percent receive any type of vision screening.

Today, of all school-age children across America, 25 percent suffer from a vision problem,(2) yet in the 9 to 15 year age group, only 10% of those needing glasses actually had them.

New Vision Screening Standard

PediaVision is committed to setting a new vision screening standard with Spot.  The technology was developed to detect vision disorders quickly, conveniently and affordably as possible.
