Peeking on Acuity Screening


Duct Tape No Peeking EYE patches

When a nurse asks a young child to determine an optotype on an acuity screening, the normal child tries to please both parent and nurse even if they know one eye cannot see. It is natural for them to try to peek under various forms of occusion commonly used such as the child's own hand, parent's hand, a paddle occluder. Only an adhesive patch, or special goggle spectacles can assure monocular testing (AAP guideline).
