This CPD course considers the tests that might be used to assess vision and visual acuity in pre-school and early school-aged children, outlining age-specific techniques.
It will also assist in identifying children who require spectacle correction or who have – or are at risk of – developing amblyopia or strabismus.
Key messages include undertaking robust testing in young children, choosing vision tests for which there are normative data so that the optometrist knows what the results obtained really mean, investing in suitable equipment, and developing expertise through continuing professional development.
