News from the Clinic ~ Vision Screening

On November 12 & 13, 2015, the Marion County Health Dept. will be at FTMS East to perform both near and far vision screening. All 8th grade students, those who are new to Marion County, and those from other grades suspected of having a vision problem will be screened this day. Please make sure that your student wears prescribed contacts/glasses, if applicable, the day of screening, to avoid unnecessary referrals.
