Adult Vision Screening Training: Half of all blindness can be prevented through early detection and treatment. Today, there are 1,259,000 older Ohioans affected by vision problems, which if not detected and treated early, could lead to blindness. Because of the growth in the aging population, there will be more than 2.5 million Ohioans affected by vision-robbing conditions by the year 2030!
After completing the Adult Vision Screening Training Program, you will be able to:
- Perform near and distance visual acuity screenings
- Educate people about “aging eye” diseases and disorders
- Describe Adult Vision Screening Guidelines Published by Prevent Blindness
Upon successful completion of the training, you will be nationally certified to provide adult vision screenings for three years and are eligible to receive FREE vision screening equipment including: Adult Risk Assessment and Registration Forms, Near and Distance Visual Acuity Charts and assorted educational vision resources and brochures.
