Guidelines for school eye health in the EMR region

Guidelines for school eye health in the EMR region

These guidelines provide the basic directions to develop appropriate school screening programmes linked to accessible and affordable refraction and corrective services to get a reduction in preventable blindness and low vision in the region due to refractive error and other visual impairing conditions in children through early detection, refraction and correction. The guidelines are not prescriptive and countries/programmes should adopt them to fit their local context.
