    Hey Andrew or others--

    Can anyone tell me where to find official info on when kids should get basic VA screenings to check for amblyopia? Our family practice clinic at our school does not do them here, and I am trying to convince them it would be a good idea! I looked briefly on the AAO website, but couldn't find much (I am on ICU right now, so time was pretty limited!)

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks
