Abstract

Summary: The history of screening for amblyopia, strabismus and refractive error has been well publicised and described.1,2 Despite recommendations from the UK National Screening Committee (NSC)3 and Hall Report4 for screening to be offered at to all 4- to 5-year-olds, variation in what is offered, and by whom, remains an ongoing issue. The consequences of this are discussed.
