Eyes on You-Tube: Screening or Exam?

Vision screening or eye exam? Learn the difference and see what’s best. This video helped pass Illinois’ eye exam law and can help your state, too.

Produced by the Illinois Optometric Association (IOA) in 2004. Winner of the “Healthy Eyes, Healthy People” grant awarded by the National Eye Institute.

Save a child’s vision. Save a child’s future.

  • Know vision screening is not a substitute for an eye examination.

  2. Hi Janet,

    Well done! I could only wish that more of your fellow countrymen and -women follow your example and get things DONE at the grassroots level instead of relying on political ‘decisions’.

    All the best for the future,

    Bill

  3. Thanks, Bill, for your kind words. You’re so right about getting involved at the “grassroots” level.

    Margaret Mead’s famous quote sums it up very well: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

    May other parents and states be inspired to raise the standards of eye care for all children.

  4. Congratulations, Janet! The video is excellent!

  9. Thanks, Janet…a long time since I viewed that and look how far you have helped advance eye care for children in this state.

    I love the quote from Margaret Meade: “Never doubt a small group of committed individuals can change the world, indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
