District C-1 Vision Screening Program

Vision Screen Endorsed District C-1 Lions Project

Vision Screening has been endorsed as an ongoing District C-1 Lions project throughout the clubs in the district. A Plusoptix vision screening device has been received through a District and Community Impact Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) grant.

The purpose of the Plusoptix vision screening device is to empower Lions Clubs to detect the most prevalent vision disorders in children as early as possible. The earlier a vision disorder is detected the better it can be treated, and possibly prevented. Lions Clubs can conduct vision screening in children aged 6 months to 12 years by holding community events.

The vision screener device is relatively easy to use, and a great opportunity exists for clubs to meet young families in the community. Organizing the training, developing forms and protocols for District C-1 Lions clubs is underway. Once finalized, clubs will be advised and can signup for training.
