Vision Screen – PreSchool Children

Posted on April 12, 2024

Fairfax Host Lions Club screened children’s vision on April 11 & 12 at Fairfax United Methodist Church Preschool.  We screened 22 students, aged 3-5.  Only one student needed to be referred to an optometrist for further testing.  Four Lions served each day…participating Lions:  Mike Greeley, Joe Breda, Joe Rovansek, Gordon Tillery, Harry Pontius, and Marty Lockard.  Working with the youngsters is always fun, and it is a great service – assuring the children can properly see (or need to see a professional for vision correction), before they advance in school. 

Screening Pre-School staff members is an added service!

Accompanying Lions vision Screening, was Laura Lynch of Fairfax County Health Department. She screened hearing of pre-schoolers. That FX County office goes to preschools (public and private) to provide free hearing and/or speech screenings to make sure children receive recommended speech & hearing services before going to kindergarten…a great compliment for Lions Vision Screening!!!
