Final Recommendation Statement: Vision Screening in Children Aged 6 Months to 5 Years

The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force released today a final recommendation statement on vision screening in children aged 6 months to 5 years. The Task Force found that clinicians should conduct vision screening in children aged 3 to 5 years and found insufficient evidence to recommend for or against screening in younger children.

To view the recommendation and the evidence on which it is based, please go to https://www.uspreventiveservicestaskforce.org/Page/Document/UpdateSummaryFinal/vision-in-children-ages-6-months-to-5-years-screening. The final recommendation statement can also be found in the September 5, 2017, online issue of JAMA.

Current as of: September 2017
