Successful Lions Vision Screening Event

The Atkinson Lions Club recently offered a vision screening event at Atkinson Academy. They screened over 300 children. Eighty percent of all visual impairment can be prevented or cured. The first step to prevention is awareness. The second is early detection through vision screening. Around the world, Lions partner with medical professionals and community leaders to screen young children.Early identification leads to timely referral, professional treatment, and improved or restored sight. This screening day happened to be at The Atkinson Academy.
