Instrument-based vision screening refers to vision screening using an automated device like the Welch Allyn Spot Vision Screener to help identify vision conditions or risk factors that may cause decreased vision or amblyopia.2

The Spot Vision Screener is a handheld, portable ocular screening device designed to detect amblyopic risk factors2 quickly3 and easily3. Minimal training is required to capture images from a non-invasive, three-foot distance fixation target and sounds that help keep a child’s focus. In fact, Spot Vision Screener captures readings 97% of the time.4 With several financial options available for securing the Welch Allyn Spot Vision Screener, instrument-based vision screening is within reach for any organization.
