Health Promotion Board (HPB) conducts yearly eye tests for K2 & K1 children. These check for
common eye conditions like myopia (short-sightedness).
During this simple test, your child will be asked to read off a chart, from a pre-determined
distance to check his eyesight. If the results show that your child may be short-sighted, they will
be referred to HPB’s Refraction Clinic for further assessment.
3D Vision Screening will test if your child has a normal three-dimensional (3D) vision.
Special patterned plates will be shown to him. If he is unable to pick out the right images, he may have a
squint or other condition, and will also be referred to the Refraction Clinic for further assessment.
Otherwise, for children with acceptable vision (visual acuity), an Advisory on the Vision
(Eyesight) the test will be issued to you via your child for future reference.
Your child will also learn simple, helpful tips on eye-care during this test.
