WAC 246-760-070

What visual acuity screening equipment must be used?

Personnel conducting the screening must use a Snellen test chart for screening for distance central vision acuity. Either the Snellen E chart or the standard Snellen distance acuity chart may be used as appropriate to the child's age and abilities. The test chart must be properly illuminated and glare free.
Other screening procedures equivalent to the Snellen test may be used only if approved by the state board of health.
