Vision screening may help youngsters

Vision screening may be effective and appropriate at very young ages.

The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recently said there wasn't enough evidence to recommend screening children under age 3 for vision problems like amblyopia, but new data from the University of Iowa found testing for such problems was equally effective in kids under age 3 as it was for kids over age 4.

The condition, also called "lazy eye", is highly treatable if caught early.
