I have a 4th grader who did not pass vision screening recently: 20/40 and 20/50 for her far vision. She passed near vision. I sent home a referral letter, and today emailed to follow-up. Her mom responded, "her doctor thinks she can wait another year to see an eye doctor"
This child's vision screening at her peds' over the summer was the same. So at least it hasn't gotten worse, but our state cutoff is 20/30.
Should I ask for a letter from her doctor? Try to convince the parents to take her to get checked out?
(As background, I work in a private school in a state with mandatory healthcare, so I don't think the issue is financial)
