The Lions Club of Tega Cay and Riverhills has partnered with Rock Hill School district to provide free vision screening to students in each of our schools. According to educational experts, 80% of learning is visual. So if a child can’t see well, he can’t learn well. The mission of the Lions Club is to ensure eye screening for all children and referral for follow-up care is given to all students in need because every child deserves to learn and see the world clearly. 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. Early identification leads to timely referral, professional treatment, and improved or restored sight.
The Lions Club will screen students with a screening device (similar to the appearance to a digital camera) to identify vision problems. The screener takes a reading of the student’s eye from a distance of 3-4 feet while the student looks into the screening device. No physical contact is made with the student and no eye drops or medications are used. Screening results will be given to the school nurse at your child’s school. If your child needs follow up care with an eye doctor, the school nurse will send home a referral letter and printout of the screening results.
Screenings will be on September 4, 2018. If you do not wish for your student to participate in this vision screening program please contact your child’s school nurse.
