LAKE MARY, FL--(Marketwire - June 11, 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 33rd Annual Florida Suncoast Pediatric
Conference in Clearwater June 11-14. The PAS is a revolutionary vision
screening solution that assists Pediatricians in the detection of
refractive errors, amblyopia, strabismus, anisocoria, and media opacities.
Presented by All Children's Hospital, the 33rd Annual Florida Suncoast
Pediatric Conference provides state-of-the-art information on current
trends in pediatrics and its specialties. This year the Suncoast
Conference is also hosting the "2nd Annual Pediatrics of Tomorrow"
conference. In recognition of this joint effort, the agenda and topics have
been specifically developed to address the needs of both the busy physician
who is new to practice as well as the seasoned pediatrician and general
practitioner. PediaVision's Assessment Solution will be the only binocular
vision screening device exhibited at the conference that produces highly
accurate, immediate results.
"Effective for screening children of any age, especially pre-verbal
children, our PediaVision Assessment Solution (PAS) gives Pediatricians the
tool they need for highly accurate, early vision assessment," 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," he added.
Dr. Miles Landis, a pediatrician at Lake Mary Pediatrics, appreciates how
easy it is to use the
PediaVision device on a young patient. The practice has one in both its
Orange City and Lake
Mary offices. "It's actually fun to do, which is unusual in pediatrics,"
The PAS produces a recommendation as to whether or not a subject should be
referred to an eye care specialist.
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
