Free Vision Screening for Children to be offered at Webberville Easter Egg Hunt
A Free Vision Screening for Children is being offered during the Webberville Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, March 31, starting at 10a.m. at the Webberville High School football field. The screening is sponsored by the Webberville Lions Club and is part of the group’s Project KIDsight.
The screening is primarily intended for children ages one to six, but older children are welcome.
Project KIDsight is a vision screening program to detect potential vision disorders in children that can cause permanent vision loss when treatment is delayed. Through Project KIDsight, your child's vision will be tested with a high tech camera that will quickly (1 second) and accurately determine whether your child's vision is a Pass or a Refer. When the result of the vision screening is a Refer, the child should be examined by an ophthalmologist or optometrist as soon as possible.
Five percent of all preschool age children experience vision loss from an undetected vision disorder, and treatment options increase when vision problems are detected early in a child's life. Normal vision can usually be restored with eye glasses, contact lenses and sometimes patching.
A consent form attached must be filled out before the free screening. If you have any questions contact, "Chad McCann" <firstname.lastname@example.org>
