Vision Screening can answer this question.
With a measurement from one meter in less than a second, it is possible to detect the most prevalent vision disorders.
Seeing needs to be learned
Because eyes are the most important sensory organ of humans. And yet 1 in 5 children suffer from vision disorders, which can lead to amblyopia without early detection.1
But just as with running or speaking, children also have to learn to see with both eyes (binocular vision) in the first years of life.
Parents witness the progress as their baby learns to move or to speak the first words every day. How and what your child sees, remains unknown.

Two healthy eyes are crucial for the child's future
Good vision is important for school performance, road safety and also when choosing a career.
Children dream of working as a bus driver, fireman, police officer or pilot. But for that they have to be able to see really well as adults. With poor eyesight, they cannot practice these professions.
Kostenübernahme durch die Krankenkassen
Die Kosten der Augenvorsorgeuntersuchung beim Kinderarzt (auch Amblyopiescreening genannt), werden von einigen Krankenkassen übernommen.
Falls Ihre Krankenkasse das Amblyopiescreening nicht bezahlen sollte, können Sie mit der Rechnung dieser Leistung einen Antrag auf Kostenerstattung bei Ihrer Krankenkasse stellen.
Vision Screening played a life-saving role for my daughter. I think that every school and every pediatrician’s office should have one.
We as parents can only recommend vision screening. It doesn't hurt the child, on the contrary, our children even had fun doing it. In addition, the measurement is quickly over and the results are clear.
I would never have thought, that a vision screening is conducted so fast and easy.
