Lions Club Vision Screenings

Downsville Lion's Club Vision Screening

The Downsville Lion’s Club comes annually to provide vision screenings for our Pk-4th Graders.

Vision Screening Program

The Lions Clubs in New York State have launched a special program to screen children for vision problems that can lead to Amblyopia, commonly referred to as “lazy eye.” The program focuses on screening children between the ages of 6 months and 6 years. The trained volunteers from your local Lions Club will screen the children’s eyes with either a Welch Allyn vision screener or a Plusoptix screener.

What we screen for: The Vision Screeners detect risk factors that may lead to Amblyopia including: Myopia - Nearsightedness Hyperopia - Farsightedness Anisometropia - Unequal refractive power Astigmatism - Irregular eye shape Media Opacity - cataract Strabismus - Eye misalignment The Vision Screeners are approximately 85 - 95% effective in detecting problems that may lead to amblyopia.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Health Office.
