  • Look Inside

This is a review of annual ophthalmic checkup of 3-year-old children during the past 15 years from 1975 through 89. A questionnaire and visual acuity test chart were mailed to parents of 3-year-old children. Out of the 77,335 forms returned, which show a retrieval rate of 73.3%, 3,057 children were judged to be in need of further ophthalmological examinations. A total of 1,754 actually showed upfor examination. Of these 1,754, strabismus was present in 164 children. Refractometry and cyclo-plegia were conducted in 688 and resulted in detec-tion of hyperopia and hyperopic astigmatism in about 80%. Accurate visual acuity testing was possible in more numerous children in medical insti-tutions than at home at the ratio of 3 to 2.
