Early vision screening is integral to a child’s early health and development, especially in regards to the prevention and treatment of amblyopia. According to the American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus (AAPOS), amblyopia is the #1 cause of preventable vision loss in children. Regular vision screening assessments in early childhood reduce the risk of persistent amblyopia at 7 years of age by more than 50%. However, fewer than 20% of children receive adequate vision screening. As a result, “amblyopia remains the most common cause of monocular visual impairment among children.” GoCheck Kids is solving this by bringing photoscreening and visual acuity to a smartphone. This allows for a simple, accurate, and affordable way for pediatricians to screen their patients according to the American Academy of Pediatrics' vision screening policy statement. GoCheck Kids removes the economic barriers to photoscreening: Zero upfront costs, no per test fees and a small month-to-month subscription fee, practices can now affordably and accurately screen their young patients for amblyopic risk factors.
