Vision and Hearing Screening
Illinois State law mandates that the following high school students be screened for vision and hearing on an annual basis:
- special education students
- transfer students
- foster students
- teacher/parent/guardian referrals
The screening process is ongoing throughout the school year and is administered by a certified vision and hearing technician.
Vision screening is not a substitute for a complete eye and vision evaluation by an eye doctor. Your child is not required to undergo this vision screening if an optometrist or ophthalmologist has completed and signed a report form indicating that an examination has been administered within the previous 12 months.
