New Spot Vision Screener Completes School Screening in Less Than Two Hours
Date:11/9/2011

LAKE MARY, Fla., Nov. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Spot, the revolutionary new vision screening tool from PediaVision, is quickly changing the efficiency of vision screenings at schools across America due to the device's speed, accuracy, ease of use and data tracking.

The new Spot vision screener is manufactured for PediaVision by Mack Medical, which selected Fisher Elementary in Arlington, Vermont as one of the schools to conduct a pilot screening.

"It was so amazing!" said Amy Goodfellow, the school nurse at Fisher Elementary, who has done many screenings over the years. "It was a wonderful experience. It would normally take me at least 10 minutes per student for a vision screening, but with the Spot vision screener, it literally took me only 10 seconds per student."

There are 160 students at Fisher Elementary, ranging in school age from pre-kindergarten through fifth grade, and the entire screening took less than two hours.  In the past, Goodfellow said it would take much longer, days and even weeks to complete.  

Speed wasn't the only attribute about Spot that got Goodfellow's attention.

"My favorite thing about Spot was being able to screen students whom I hadn't been able to screen in the past using the eye chart," said Goodfellow. "This was perfect.  It was not subjective. It was scientific, providing an accurate measurement of each student's eyes."

The screening with Spot identified 11 students who have a vision issue and are being referred to an eye doctor for a full eye exam.

"These are all students I have screened in the past, but wasn't able to identify a problem using the eye chart," said Goodfellow.

One case in particular feels like a great vision health victory for the school nurse.

"I have a special needs student whom I have been unable to get an accurate reading for in the past," Goodfellow said.  "The screening with Spot showed an astigmatism, myopia (nearsightednes
