Clinical studies show:
Most children under 5 get amblyopia because of strabismus
Refractive error is rarely the sole cause of amblyopia
Most screening instruments currently measure for refractive error
Refraction instruments miss as many as 1 in 4 children with amblyopia*
Refraction instruments refer 7 of 8 children who do not need treatment for amblyopia**
Parent compliance to screening referrals is very low***
