October 21 WEB-Based Children's Vision Screening Training: Charts, SPOT, Plus-Optix 

Prevent Blindness Wisconsin’s Children 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 
  • CVS training materials and resources 

By participating in the training, you will become certified by Prevent Blindness Wisconsin in children vision screening for a three-year period. If you have not been trained or recertified in the last three years, you should attend.

Following the training, you will schedule a 30-minute Skills Check with Prevent Blindness Wisconsin staff. This provides you with an opportunity to review vision screening protocol, answer any questions specific to your screening program, and discuss barriers to care encountered in your program. 

For registrants needing to pay via check, please contact Courtney at Courtney@pbwi.org. No purchase orders accepted.
