Our pediatricians are always looking for innovative approaches to prevention and treatment. For example, traditional vision and hearing screenings don’t work for very young children, yet are critically important to identify and treat issues early in brain development. So we use a smartphone-based vision screening system which takes a photo and analyzes a child’s “red reflex” to detect vision problems beginning at 6 months old. We also use an iPad-based hearing screening “game” which makes the process more engaging and accessible to children earlier than the traditional headphone-hand-raise hearing test.
