Spot Vision Screener

Fast and easy vision measurement in children six months and older

The Spot Vision Screener is a handheld, portable device designed to help users quickly and easily detect vision issues on patients from 6 months of age through adult. Spot screens both eyes at once from a nonthreatening 3-foot distance. … It can be used for vision screening or autorefraction.

Spot accurately detects the potential indication of these common vision problems:

  • Myopia (nearsightedness)
  • Hyperopia (farsightedness)
  • Astigmatism (blurred vision)
  • Anisometropia (unequal refractive power)
  • Strabismus (eye misalignment)
  • Anisocoria (unequal pupil size)

The Challenge

Failing to detect and treat ision disorders in children may lead to partial or full blindness, and may result in issues with child development, academic achievement, self-esteem, social-emotional behavior, and juvenile delinquency.

6 mos – 3 years

Ideal stage to detect amblyopic precursors

4 – 8 years

(assess school readiness)
Final opportunity to detect amblyopic conditions through refractive measurements

9 – 18 years

Changes in vision are common as the body grows; 1 in 4¹ children in this stage have a vision issue

Spot Vision Screener is a hand-held, portable device designed to help users quickly and accurately detect vision issues.

Spot Vision Screener can screen and detect six amblyopic risk factors in children as young as 6 months:

Spot Vision Screener is revolutionizing vision screening in children.

Better Screening Experience

  • Touch-screen display is easy to operate and requires minimal user training
  • Point and shoot technology with auto capture feature allows anyone to screen effectively
  • Intuitive, on-screen instructions guide users through the process
  • Noninvasive 3-foot working distance requiring minimal cooperation from the child
  • Hand-held, portable design is comfortable for screeners and makes it easy to take along with you
  • Long-lasting rechargeable battery reduces need for disposable batteries
  • Pre-load student lists before a screening day to increase efficiency and then export results via USB or a wireless network

Consistent and Complete Results

  •  Has been shown to capture readings 97% of the time helping to screen otherwise difficult children
  • Soothing sounds and mild infrared LED lights quickly grab child’s attention
  • Immediate on-screen results of both eyes offers either a “Complete Eye Exam Recommended” or “All Measurements in Range” (also lists conditions
    if detected)
  • Screening result certificate can be printed wirelessly to label or desktop printer to improve follow-up communication

“In past years I alone screened students; it took four months! The Spot Vision Screener is fantastic – in just three days, with the support of the Oregon LIONs, we screened 1,152 children including those with special needs.”

Aesthetic Ophthalmology

Cosmetic Opthalmology can “turn back time” by reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines, sun damage and sagging skin that can make your eyes look angry, sad or tired.



Glaucoma is an eye disorder that causes damage to the optic nerve that carries information from the eye to the brain. Glaucoma usually has few or no initial symptoms.


Refractive Surgery

Refractive surgery includes an array of modern surgical procedures designed to improve vision problems, often eliminating the need for corrective lenses.


Pediatric Ophthalmology

Pediatric ophthalmologist focus on the development of the visual system and the various diseases that disrupt visual development in childrenaque
