Healthy vision is something many take for granted. In most cases, we don’t know that there is a problem until something happens to point it out. The way your child sees the world is the only way they know - they might not realize there could, in fact, be a problem. For the screenings, the Lions Club members will use a SPOT vision screening device that takes a “snapshot” of a child’s eyes. If they see any abnormalities, they will print a form for a child’s parent or guardian to take to an eye doctor.
