National Center Leadership

The National Center for Children’s Vision and Eye Health is convener of leaders in children’s vision.

The National Center for Children’s Vision and Eye Health is a convener of leaders in children’s vision to ensure excellence in the products and services of the Center.  The members of the National Expert Panel published recommendations which provide evidence-based best practices in vision screening in children ages 3, 4, and 5 years old, established performance measures for children’s vision health, and outlined mechanisms for uniform data collection and reporting.   In 2013 the expertise of the National Expert Panel transitioned into a formal Advisory Committee for the Center.  The Advisory Committee is a body of nationally recognized leaders in children’s health, vision care, public health, early education, childcare, vision research, and family advocacy who guide the work of the Center.  The Committee is charged with promoting best practice in early detection and comprehensive care for children’s vision, guiding policy and program development through technical assistance, and ensuring quality in all of the Center’s endeavors.  Specific functions of the Advisory Committee will be delegated to the three subcommittees which include Education/Data, Technical Guidance, and Policy.
