Year 7 Vision Screening

Year 7 Vision Screening

The Vision Hearing Technicians from the Population Health team, Southern District Health will be visiting The Catlins Area School to screen all Year 7 students for distance vision on 15th March 2021.

Students will be tested for:

  • Distance Vision (Amblyopia & Hyperopia) - This determines how well your child is able to see at a distance.  It involves reading an eye chart.

This free vision check is not required if your child wears glasses and/or is currently under the care of an optometrist or eye specialist.

If you do not wish your child to be screened please fill out the opt-out slip before the visit: Screen Vision Opt-Out or collect one from the School Office.
