Cubsight Vision Screening at OLG

Published 12:00 am Wednesday, October 30, 2013

The LaPlace Lions Club recently visited Our Lady of Grace Elementary School in LaPlace. Lion volunteers screened more than 90 children for potential vision problems.
By taking a photo of the child’s eyes with a special camera, the Lions can determine if the child has amblyopia, commonly referred to as lazy eye, or any other eye diseases. By monitoring how the child’s eyes react to light, the Lions are able to prevent blindness in these children with early detection and appropriate care.
The Louisiana Lions have screened more than 200,000 children since the inception of the program. The Louisiana Lions Cubsight Program is sponsored by the Lions Clubs International Foundation, Louisiana Lions Eye Foundation, Louisiana State University Health Science Center, Louisiana Office of Public Health, local Lions Clubs of Louisiana and donations from the public.
