PediaVision Assessment Solution to Be Demonstrated at 33rd Annual Florida Suncoast Pediatric Conference in Clearwater June 11-14


6/11/2009 10:25:55 AM

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," he said.

The PAS produces a recommendation as to whether or not a subject should be referred to an eye care specialist.
