Vision Screening

district 4C1Lions are the “Knights of the Blind in the Crusade Against Darkness”  and  we provide FREE vision screening whenever and wherever we can.

The Lions of District 4-C1 work with the Pediavion Spot Vision Camera that is the latest technology in eye screening cameras. Lions all over District 4-C1 have been conducting Vision Screening at Schools, Events & Fairs. If you are recommended, the LIONS conducting the screening will print you a referal slip that you can take to any eye doctor.

 

Spot is powered by sophisticated technology that quickly detects the indication of the following vision issues:

  • Near-sightedness (myopia)
  • Far-sightedness (hyperopia)
  • Unequal refractive power (anisometropia)
  • Blurred vision, eye structure problem (astigmatism)
  • Pupil size deviations (anisocoria)
  • Eye misalignment (strabismus)

In just seconds, Spot provides a comprehensive, reliable analysis that enables informed decision makingabout the need for follow-up diagnosis.

A vision screening is designed to check eyesight, or sharpness of vision. Sharpness of vision, or visual acuity, is recorded as a fraction, e.g., 20/20. This means that a person can read a line of type standing 20 feet (or six meters) from an eye chart. A vision screening is done to separate those with and without possible vision problems. Vision screening results may indicate a potential need for further assessment. A vision screening is not a substitute for a complete eye and vision evaluation by an eye doctor.
