Lions Screen Vision of Pre-School Children

Posted on October 7, 2019Comments are off

The Fairfax Lions Club completed a vision screening event at the Main Street Child Development Center in Fairfax on Oct 7.  Fifty pre-school children age 3 to 5 were screened, and ten were referred for a complete eye exam.  One of the referrals could not be screened after four failed attempts because the boy’s pupils were too small.  A 20% referral rate is quite high for pre-school children.  It is a privilege to be able to help identify possible vision problems in young persons.

The demand for donated blood in our nation’s hospitals is consistently high – hospitals need about 40,000 donors every single day! YOU can make a life saving difference.
