Vision screening is not a substitute for a complete eye and vision evaluation by an eye doctor. Your child is not required to undergo this vision screening if an optometrist or ophthalmologist has completed and signed a report form indicating that an examination has been administered within the previous 12 months.

 

Hearing screening is not a substitute for a complete hearing evaluation by a physician.  A signed report form indicating that the child has had an ear examination by a physician and an evaluation by an audiologist within the past year is acceptable in lieu of the screening.
