News you can Use!
Kid Sight Vision Screening with Spot
Spot screenings by Lions Clubs across the USA are finding an average of 20% of the kids from
6 months to 60 months of age are “recommended for an eye examination”. Vision disorders
stand a good chance of correction without surgery if detected at this early age. Lions can make
a difference like never before in our history.
