Abstract

The purpose of the following thesis is to promote a better understanding of Pacific University's Vision Screening Program by optometry students and the children we screen. One video and the instruction manual is for optometry student use. These both explain the procedures and guidelines for participating in the vision screening program. It is our hope that students who read the manual and watch the video prior to attending their first screening will feel more comfortable with the procedures, thereby creating a better learning experience. The second video is primarily for the young students who are recipients of vision screenings through Pacific University's Vision Screening Program. By viewing this video prior to the screening date children should feel more comfortable with the testing process, thereby decreasing the amount of patients who are unwilling to participate.
