The C.A.S.A VISION SCREENER is a self testing vision chart, which was developed in response to a need in vision screening of the general population. Our aim was to encourage motorists and cyclists to regularly screen their vision for road safety. The company’s first project involved placing these screeners in all the pharmacy locations of the chain, Pharmaprix. They were positioned in the waiting area adjacent to the prescription counter.

The pharmacy now offered vision screening as well as its many other health services (ie. Blood pressure monitoring). Pfizer was integral in sponsoring this project.More recent projects included establishing the presence of these screeners in optical retail outlets. Johnson & Johnson Vision Care endorsed this endeavor. With these charts strategically placed in the waiting area/frame room, ample opportunity was provided for passerby traffic to engage in self-testing.

ABOUT MACULAR DEGENERATION

C.A.S.A-Vision Screener

Dr. Cianciullo and Dr. Yalovsky were strongly involved in the clinical study of the C.A.S.A-Vision screener.

Our C.A.S.A-vision screener is sensitive to vision changes resulting from pathological (i.e. disease) or physiological (i.e. aging) reasons.
Thus it will serve to help in the tracking of a disease process (i.e. diabetes, macular degeneration) by detecting the associated shifts in vision
which are manifested during the course of the disease.

The History of C.A.S.A Vision Screener

The C.A.S.A VISION SCREENER is a self testing vision chart, which was developed in response to a need for vision screening of the general population. The idea for the chart came when Dr. Yalovsky’s son developed a cataract at the age of six. Untreated, his son could have gone blind. Passionate about developing a quick and easy diagnosis for detecting vision difficulties, Dr. Yalovsky developed a screener with Dr. Cianciullo and a grant from Pfizer. The company’s first major project involved placing these screeners in all Pharmaprix pharmacies. They were positioned in the waiting area adjacent to the prescription counter.

The pharmacy now offers vision screening as part of its many other health services (i.e.: Blood pressure monitoring). Pfizer was integral in sponsoring this project. More recent projects included establishing the presence of these screeners in optical retail outlets. Johnson & Johnson Vision Care endorsed this endeavor. With these charts strategically placed in the waiting area/frame room, stores provided ample opportunity for passers-by to engage in self-testing.

Another partnership program was conducted with Visine in French please click here to see the ad.

C.A.S.A Vision obtained a sponsorship from Essilor Canada in the distribution of the C.A.S.A Vision screener nationwide internally in October 2016 on World Sight Day.
