Groesbeck Lions Club News
Following the August 9, 2017, meeting of the Groesbeck Lions Club, several members assembled at the Limestone Medical Center to do Spot Vision screenings for any Groesbeck ISD student who does not have access to such services. These screenings are free of charge and are provided by trained and certified Lions Club members.
All the Lions Clubs in the Central Texas area have access to the Welch-Allyn Vision Spot Screeners and routinely perform this free service for children. The mission is to provide vision screening to the youth of our community who do not have access to pediatric eye screening programs. The goal is to identify vision issues early enough in a child’s life to assist in correcting vision for life.
The Vision Spot Screener provides for early detection in order that treatment can lead to a lifelong vision changing experience. After the age of 8 there are a number of vision issues which cannot be corrected. The earlier a vision problem is detected and treated, the more successful the treatment. Please follow the Groesbeck Lions Club on Facebook and website or the Groesbeck Journal for the next screening opportunity.
