Prevent Blindness Wisconsin’s Children and Adult Vision Screening Trainings are designed to aid public health professionals, school nurses, pediatric/family practitioner staff, clinic staff, and volunteers to conduct sound vision screening programs throughout the community.
The training(s) will include:
- Vision Screening Procedures
- Referral Criteria – established by Prevent Blindness and the National Center for Children’s Vision and Eye Health – the nation’s leading authority on vision screening
- Information about common vision problems seen in children and/or adults
- A training manual and handouts
By participating in the training, you will become certified by Prevent Blindness Wisconsin in children and/or adult vision screening for a three-year period. If you have not been trained or recertified in the last three years, you should attend.
