    Article - En anglais

    Ophthalmic screening was done on 23,810 children visited at schools in different regions of Ankara.

    Children with below normal visual acuity were invited to the outpatient department and had a full routine ocular examination.

    Thirty-nine nursery and primary schools were selected, ten of them private, eleven average state schools, seven good state schools and eleven village schools.

    Among the 23,810 children, 3095 (13%) had various pathology ; 1516 were girls, 1579 boys.

    Refractive errors were found in 85% of the children (2630).

    This equals 11% of the total screened population.

    Refractive errors were myopia 32%, hypermetropia 21%, astigmatism 47%. Strabismic children were 2.5%, and amblyopia was found in 1.1%. The purpose of the study was to assess the place of an ocular screening program in primary school children and to discuss the differences encountered in different urban areas.
