“Where There’s a Need, There’s a Lion!”

Through our KidSight USA Pediatric Vision Screening program, we have referred many children through the school nurse for further eye care and or examination and treatment. Many parents of those children had no idea that their child had any vision problems.  But because of our Lions KidSight USA program, they were able to get their child the medical care that they needed.  WE SERVE!

The KidSight USA program screens at local events, schools and daycare facilities. A trained Lion uses a high-tech screening device, a Welch Allyn Spot Vision Screener®

The Spot Vision Screener® is a handheld, portable, ocular screening device designed to help quickly and easily detect vision issues in children as young as six months. It gives results in seconds, which automatically captures an image from a non-invasive, three-foot distance using the fixation target and sounds that help keep a child’s focus
