LAKE MARY, FL--(Marketwire - June 01, 2009) -
PediaVision, a company dedicated to solving
the critical problem of undiagnosed vision problems affecting thousands of
children and to helping Pediatricians provide thorough vision screening,
today announced it will demonstrate its state-of-the-art PediaVision
Assessment Solution (PAS) at the 31st Annual Common Problems in Pediatrics
Conference June 1-3 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
The PAS is a revolutionary vision screening solution that assists
Pediatricians in the detection of refractive errors, amblyopia, strabismus,
anisocoria, and media opacities.
With the overall goal of promoting the well-being of all children, the
Common Problems in Pediatrics Conference is hosted by the Intermountain
Pediatric Society and American Academy of Pediatrics Utah Chapter to bring
together experts in the field of pediatrics. The Conference focuses on
all aspects of pediatric medicine, including pediatric gynecology,
pediatric gastroenterology, ophthalmology and emergency medicine.
"The only binocular vision screening device that produces highly accurate,
immediate results, our PediaVision Assessment Solution (PAS) is effective
for screening children of any age, especially pre-verbal children," said
PediaVision's CEO David Melnik.
"Parents look to their Pediatrician for early health assessments and trust
their physician to thoroughly evaluate and identify any problems from
birth," Melnik said. "Pediatricians now have the tool they need for highly
accurate, early vision assessment."
The PAS produces a recommendation as to whether or not a subject should be
referred to an eye care specialist.
"From the Pediatric Ophthalmologist's standpoint it's very important to
note that approximately two out of every three patients referred will have
pathology that requires treatment," Pediatric Ophthalmologist Dr. Michael
Abrams said. "Devices like the PediaVision Assessment Solution help
Pediatricians identify possible vision problems, and we highly recommend
that Pediatricians use a screening device like this," he added.
PediaVision is dedicated to solving the critical problem of undiagnosed
vision problems affecting thousands of children and to helping
Pediatricians provide thorough vision screening. The company was initially
founded in 2003 by a team of optometrists and ophthalmologists. These
medical professionals were confronted daily with the impact of permanent
vision loss in children. PediaVision has a proven technology with medical
expertise and a management team with a strong track record of transforming
industries. For more information about PediaVision, and to help the fight
