One of the most important tasks that the Lions Club has is the assistance with vision impairment or loss. With this goal in mind the Jamestown Lions Club has partnered with the Chautauqua Blind Association (www.chautauquablind.org) to assist in vision screenings for children. Since vision issues are not easy to spot in younger children one of the best ways to make sure that your child’s vision is sharp and clear is to get a vision screening done by the recommended age of 3. Screenings are just the first step but knowing is half the battle. Left unchecked, a vision issue in young children can cause more permanent issues down the road. Once discovered there are many ways to correct, treat, and modify a vision issue before it gets worse.
If you are interested in a vision screening at your school or organization please contact the Jamestown Lions Club or the Chautauqua Blind Association to schedule a screening.
