5051 Eye Examinations for Students

The parent(s) or guardian(s) of (1) all incoming students in the beginner grade and (2) all out-of-state transfer students must provide evidence of a vision examination by a qualified vision health care provider. 

They must provide evidence of the vision examination within six months prior to entrance.  The health care provider must test the student for amblyopia, strabismus and internal and external eye health, with testing sufficient to determine visual acuity. 

Any parent(s) or guardian(s) who object to a vision examination must submit a signed and dated refusal form to the school.  Parents or guardians who wish to receive information regarding free or reduced-cost visual evaluations may contact Kids Connection at (877)-NEB-KIDS or the Nebraska Optometric Association at (800) 766-4466.
