Improving pediatric vision screenings through the use of new technology.

Boca Raton FL, June 4, 2014 – When children’s vision problems are not detected as early as possible, the damage can be irreversible. From children experiencing developmental delays to the problem of vision worsening because of a lack of correction, detecting children’s potential vision difficulties is crucial. Tune in to Bloomberg Worldwide (as pd. prog) on June 8, 2014. Check your local listings for airtimes.

Vice President of Programming, JL Haber, describes the importance of early childhood vision screenings with these words: “Caring for our next generation is our moral imperative as a society, but the rate at which our children experience undetected vision problems is troubling. We are excited about the work of iScreen Vision and we are excited to share this with our viewers.” iScreen Vision says the cause of the low rate of screening is twofold. One, there is little awareness of the potential damage of undetected vision problems. Two, it is difficult to screen young children. They do not sit still very well.

iScreen Vision helps to reduce the time needed to successfully screen children, as it can be done in less than a minute. The device itself looks like a small box, where the child looks in one side and the doctor enters the patient information on the other side.

The importance of vision screenings in young children cannot be overlooked. Those interested in learning more about how the iScreen technology makes the process significantly easier should tune into the episode on Bloomberg Worldwide (as pd. prog) on June 8, 2014. Check your local listings for airtimes.
