Lions KidSight USA: Community Eye Screening for Children

Charlotte SouthPark Lions are moving forward with a KidSight project as their PlusOptix screening system has arrived. PDGs Hunter Garbee and Dave Shimberg have template letters ready to invite preschools and day care centers to sponsor screenings. They also have Parental Consent forms, results forms, and general screening information.

The next steps are 1) Identify four to six club members to perform screenings; 2) Conduct Training via two-hour Skype session led by PlusOptix; 3) Identify a number of preschools and day care centers with which Lions already have relationships and offer initial screenings; 4) Identify an individual or team to manage the screening schedule; 5) Identify school nurses or other school contacts through whom to add screening locations; and finally 6) Conduct Screenings. PDG Dave has prepared a presentation on Lions KidSight to present to area Lions Clubs, soliciting their support with screenings. If you have been waiting for an opportunity to provide hands on service, not just raise money, step forward and join the SPLC Lions KidSight Program.
