Local Eye Screening for 3yr old - 5K Students Hartford Lioness/Lions and Kettle Moraine Lions annually screen students for numerous eye problems by using the newest technology. Lioness/Lions involved are certified through Wisconsin Prevent Blindness. Parent/Guardians of the referred students are asked to make an appointment with an eye care professional for further examination.
Young children with eye problems often do not know that the way they see the world is not the way everyone sees it. Without early treatment, children's vision problems can lead to permanent vision loss or learning difficulties.
School officials can always request the Lioness/Lions to provide such a screening for their students by contacting the Hartford Lioness Club.
