General Information

HB 95 requires that within three months after a student identified with disabilities begins receiving services under an individualized education program, the child is required to undergo a comprehensive eye examination (unless the student has had an exam in the last nine months). Optometrists and ophthalmologists need to be aware of this new requirement and what they need to provide parents and school administrators.

This section of assists doctors with these tasks. The Frequently Asked Questions provide general background information about this new requirement and the Exam Report is a copy of the form that doctors need to complete after the exam and send to the child’s school. A copy of the eye exam form should also be faxed to 614-781-6521. Outcome data from the forms will be reviewed by a work group from the Optometric Association and Ophthalmological Society to determine the future needs and directions of the program.
