Abstract

Purpose of review The purpose is to review currently available instruments for vision screening in young children. Recent findings Instrumentation continues to evolve. Although the current generation of photoscreeners and autorefractors strive to identify amblyopia risk factors, newer technology aims to directly identify amblyopia in young children. Acceptance of instrument-based vision screening for this population has led to increased reimbursement for the procedure in primary care practices. Summary Instrument-based vision screening in the young child is an accepted method of screening for amblyopia. Innovations in instrumentation will continue to improve its implementation.
