Lions provide vision screening

Jan 31, 2019 | Around Ottawa County | 0 comments

The Port Clinton Lions Club provided vision screenings for 282 children in 2018, mostly 3- and 4-year-old pre-school children. As a result, 15 of the children were referred to their eye doctors for further evaluation. The Ohio Lions have purchased PlusOptix Vision Screeners to make screenings easy and non-threatening for the children. The technology is ideally suited to detect key risk factors for amblyopia, a marked loss of visual acuity in one eye that affects up to 5% of the U.S. population. Only 21% of children have their vision screened before kindergarten. Unfortunately, 72% of children with the disorder go undetected until after the window for effective treatment expires.
