Vision Screening

Posted on February 17, 2019

On Saturday, February 2, a team of Fairfax Lions joined the local Kiwanis Club on the 3rd floor of Fairfax City Firehouse #3.  The event was the Fairfax Chocolate Lover’s Festival.  The Lions screened the vision of 133 persons using the SPOT screening system our Club  owns.

Lion Discusses Screening Results with Clients

The screening process identified 35 persons (a relatively high 26% of total screened) who were referred for a complete eye exam by a professional.  Among this group, several were young children.  A number of families were screened and all were happy to learn about their vision.  One young family was glad to discover that both children needed vision correction, but we could sense their concern about the cost of obtaining professional vision care.  Lions are able to discuss with them advice on how to obtain a no-cost eye exam and eyeglasses, provided by Lions Clubs for qualified persons.

Lions are happy to identity persons with vision concerns so they may be addressed.  WE SERVE!
