VisioCheck is a huge time saver for our nurse partners, in part because school nurses helped to design the program. We value our partners and work very hard to meet their needs in conjunction with delivering improved vision outcomes for students. We are grateful for the work of our school nurses and all they do to insure the overall health and well-being for their students!
School nurses are often the primary (and sometimes only) health care provider school aged children see. Problems with acuity of children in school continues to increase concurrent with increases seen in childhood illnesses (asthma, Type 2 diabetes, mental health concerns) and the time we have to assess and care for children is very limited on the best of days. Anything that allows us to save time on routine issues (screenings for example) give nurses more time for the care of acute and chronic health issues. ~ One of our school nurse partners

A Tradition of Saving Sight Conexus, formerly known as Prevent Blindness Mid-Atlantic, was established in 1957 as the National Society to Prevent Blindness - Virginia Affiliate. Throughout our history, our name has changed to reflect our vision and reach, but our mission is clear: eliminating undetected and untreated vision problems as barriers to success, enabling all children to reach their fullest potential.
