Helena Lions Club Offers Free Vision Screenings to Local Schools

Helena Lions Club offers all local schools a service of free vision screenings for students. We use a PlusOptix system to detect vision concerns such as anisometropia, astigmatism, hyperopia, myopia, gaze asymmetry, and anisocoria. These are all vision issues which can be detected and treated at an early age. Using the PlusOptix equipment we can enter a classroom and screen each student in a matter of seconds. An entire class can be screened in a matter of minutes with very little set-up required. The PlusOptix system uses a sophisticated meter which looks somewhat like a camera, except it is packed with technology that evaluates a student's eyes from a distance of about 3.5 feet. Students find the screening process to be fun and exciting. We work with school nurses or administrators to arrange screenings and we provide them the screening results. The PlusOptix system identifies findings where a student is referred for a more complete vision exam. The school nurse or administrators then follow-up with the student. As needed, the student's family may contact Helena Lions Club for our seperate program providing professional eye exams and eye glasses. Please contact Helena Lions Club or any Lion for more information.
