At the conclusion of each significant program, VRC prepares a “Final Report” that includes the complete statistical results from the program along with stories about a few of the children found. A quick scan through one of the these Final Reports will provide a good overview of what goes into and comes out of a full-scale eye screening program:
Screening Results: Reports and Data
In addition to individual results sheets for each child, there are print and PDF reports for each screening location and consolidated and break-out reports for the overall program. All data is also provided in Excel-compatible files.
In addition to standard reporting, statistical analysis can be done on any aspect of the screening program. This is one example:
Example Custom Data Analysis
Example Screening Images
These are examples of the screening indications for a number of common vision problems. As explained in the “Important Note” near the end of this page, the goal of a screening program is to refer children with indications of possible problems to an eye doctor for examination, diagnosis and treatment recommendations.
This is a screening process and not diagnostic. Screening is intended to identify, with a reasonably high probability, subjects with a wide range of eye problems who should seek the services of an eye care professional for examination, diagnosis, and corrective recommendation. As with any screening process, there is no assurance that all problems it is intended to detect will be detected. Also, there are eye problems that are not normally detected by this screening process, including diseases affecting the retina and optic nerve, glaucoma, some astigmatisms, and color blindness.
No screening process is a substitute for full examination by a qualified eye care professional.
