Vision Screening: A Fact Sheet for Early Care and Education Programs

Children use all their senses to learn. Children’s play with puzzles, crayons, balls, and blocks can improve important visual skills. These skills contribute to a child’s school readiness.

Early detection also can lead to effective intervention and restore proper vision.
