Lions screen children’s eyes
NEW ULM — The Lions Club of New Ulm did free eye screenings for children at the New Ulm Home and Health Show. The Lions screened 124 children and found 10 children that needed to be referred to an eye doctor for further evaluation. The target age for these screenings is age 6 months thought age 6 years, although, the Lions will screen older children as well.
It is important to have children’s eyes checked during these pre-school years to catch eye problems as early as possible before they start school. If a day care or school would like to offer this free service for your children, contact Lion Brad Kirk at 507-766-4082. For more information go to “KidSight-USA.org.
