Prevent Blindness Screening
Pretty Water School

Feb. 8, 2016

In summer 2012, Prevent Blindness Oklahoma received an email from a mother expressing gratitude.  Her son was referred during a vision screening at a local OKC daycare.  In the letter she shared, “My twelve month old son failed the SPOT vision screening.  I took him to an opthalmologist who confirmed your findings.  He was diagnosed with congenital cataract causing amblyopia.  His vision was 20/80 in the left eye.  After three years of treatment, his vision is currently 20/20 in the left eye!  I am so thankful and blessed for your service.”  This child along with thousands of other children who received exams and glasses as a result of a school vision screening, is doing better in school now.  For this reason, Prevent Blindness Oklahoma continues to work each year to help improve vision for the children of Oklahoma.

“25% of school-aged children have an undiagnosed vision problem,” reports Melanie Gamble, Director of Programs for Prevent Blindness Oklahoma, “and 40% of children who fail an initial vision screening do not receive appropriate follow up care.  During the 2014-2015 school year PBO screen 343,985 children throughout the state of Oklahoma.  Of those children 36,383 were referred with possible vision problems for a comprehensive eye exam with their local optometrist or ophthalmologist.  Prevent Blindness Oklahoma strives to educate the public on the importance of eye screenings.  “Many children will improve academically with vision correction,” says Gamble.

If vision is the problem, early detection and proper correction can prevent permanent vision loss and negative attitudes toward school.  PBO’s theme for the 2015-2016 school year will be “You Are The Key To Our Success”  as we celebrate our 50th anniversary in 2015.  “We want to continue to encourage school staff and parents to make sure that children who are referred receive an exam and glasses if needed,” Mrs. Gamble emphasized.

Prevent Blindness Oklahoma is the only nonprofit agency in Oklahoma dedicated exclusively to eye health and safety.  Through their Children’s Vision Screening Program, and a 29-year partnership with the Oklahoma Masons, free vision screening will be provided at:

Pretty Water Elementary School
Feb. 8, 2016

Many children in Oklahoma can receive free exams and glasses through SoonerCare, Vision Service Plan benefits provided by PBO, or through their Vison Quest assistance program.  Replacement glasses can be received through the PBO OneSight program.  Infants 0-1 yr. old may receive a free exam through the InfantSee program provided by local optometrists.  For information go to www.infantsee.com.
