Lions SEE

It is estimated that 3-5 percent of pre-school age children have vision problems which, if left untreated, can lead to amblyopia (also known as “lazy eye”).  Amblyopia, left untreated, can lead to permanent vision loss in the affected eye. We participate in the Lions SEE screening program, which can detect these problems in children too young to realize there is a problem.  Several of our members have been trained in the use of a special camera.  Screening sessions are set up at local preschools.  Photos from this camera are examined by medical personnel and, when a problem is detected, parents are contacted and treatment options are discussed.
