Abstract

School nurses and teachers often perform visual screenings on students with the use of the Snellen Visual Acuity Chart. Snellen acuity taken at twenty feet is not an adequate evaluation of the visual system. Efficient visual skills are necessary for effective learning in current classroom environments. This is a guide directed toward school board members to improve vision screening programs provided by the educational system.
