The Waxhaw Lions Club has been screening children for vision problems since 2018. Our vision screening program, called KidSight™ is for children ages 2 – 8 years old.
Trained volunteers are ready to schedule appointments at local preschools and grammar schools in North Carolina, and even travel across the state line to schools in SC. The portable KidSight equipment screens for anisometropia, astigmatism, hyperopia, myopia, corneal reflexes, and anisocoria.
Recently, our Lions have been promoting early awareness of color blindness. We can connect children with a new lens company that offers corrective color blindness technology which will change their visual perspectives.
