All 7th grade students at AMS and CMS have a vision screening in late autumn. Referral letters for students who failed the screenings are mailed home. Please take the referral letter with you when your child has their eyes examined so the doctor can document the exam for us. Referral letters may then be returned to the clinic with your child, or can be mailed, faxed, scanned or e-mailed. Our nurses follow up on all vision referrals, so having the completed referral in your child's health folder at school is essential. If you have any questions, please contact the AMS or CMS clinics.
If you cannot afford an eye exam and glasses for your child, please know there is help available for these expenses through Prevent Blindness Ohio, the Ohio Optometric Association, and the Lions Club. Contact the AMS or CMS clinics (AMS: 458-2509; CMS: 458-2533) or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org information on accessing these programs.
