  1. Negative predictive value of a population-based preschool vision screening program.

    Article - En anglais


    The Enhanced Vision Screening Program is a population-based vision screening program that has, at present, examined 59,782 children.

    Its main goal is to detect amblyopia, strabismus, and high refractive errors.

    An average of 11,910 4 1/2- to 5 1/2-year-old children are screened yearly.

    The current study determines the negative predictive value of the screening program: For a subject having passed the vision screening test, what is the probability of not having amblyopia, strabismus, or high refractive errors?
