Adult screenings are provided throughout KBA’s service area. The POB Specialists stress the importance of regularly scheduled eye exams and assist in the early detection of glaucoma.
Screenings include distance and near visual acuities, color perception, and depth perception. Age Related Macular Degeneration screenings are also provided using an Amsler Grid. Individuals are instructed in the use of the Amsler, and are provided with one to continue the screenings at home.
Intraocular Pressure (glaucoma) screenings are conducted using a non-contact tonometer or “puff of air”. The readings are displayed, and provided at the time of the screening.
Individuals who fail the vision screenings or have abnormal readings during the IntraOcular Pressure (glaucoma) screenings are referred to eye care professionals for complete eye examinations.
