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). School administrators need to be aware of this new requirement, know what information to provide to parents and what documentation they should be receiving from the doctor.

This section of assists school administrators with these tasks. The Q & A document provides general background information about this new requirement, the doctor finder helps locate doctors in our community (this electronic finder could be used in addition to the phone book and other listings of doctors that the school might provide to the parent), and the Exam Report is a copy of the form that administrators will receive from the doctor at the completion of the exam to keep in the child’s record. 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.

If you are a school administrator and you have any questions about the information contained in this section of the website, please send an email to
