Updated Kansas Vision Screening Requirements & Guidelines

The overarching goal of these guidelines is the ongoing promotion of an evidence-based vision screening and eye health program for Kansas infants, children, and youth - a program that includes early detection, referral, communication with parents and caregivers, follow-up eye examinations and interventions, adhering to treatment plans, collaboration among stakeholders, documentation, and program evaluation. In addition, the guidelines provide instruction and discussion regarding state required and national recommendations. The guidelines are meant for all children from birth through age 21 years in both public and private health programs including Part C Infant-Toddler Service (ITS) screening and school screening.
