ABCD History
The person conducting vision screening clinic using acuity testing MUST assure that the non-tested eye is not peeking. One of the best ways to assure monocular testing is to apply an adhesive patch over the non-tested eye. This allows the screener to pay attention to the testing device and encourage the child. Combative behavior to the patch may indicate vision loss in that eye.
