Policy guidelines strongly recommend instrument-based vision screening.
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) supports instrument-based vision screening as an alternative to visual acuity testing with eye charts (Snellen chart, optotypes). These techniques have better success after 12 months of age and can be repeated at each annual preventative medicine encounter through 5 years of age or until visual acuity can be assessed reliably.⁴
