St John Lions Kid Sight Equipment

Each fall at the St. John Fire Department open house, the St. John Lions Club has tested children ages 18 months through 6 years for Amblyopia (lazy eye) for free. We would like to expand that free service to several other times of the year including the local schools and daycare centers. However, we are in need of new testing equipment.

This free testing is done in conjunction with the Indiana Lions Eye Bank and the Operation Kid Sight program. The first few years of a child’s life are critical in the development of normal vision. A child with vision problems often does not realize that the way they see the world is not the way everyone else sees it. Vision abnormalities in a child’s eyes may occur even when the eye appears to look normal. It is estimated that 3–4% of children may have vision loss from undetected amblyopia—what is commonly referred to as “lazy eye.” If this and other problems are not detected early, a child’s vision may deteriorate to the point of irreversible blindness.

Would you please consider a donation to our Go Fund Me page to help us raise the $5,000.00 needed to purchase the equipment?

The St. John Lions Club thanks you for your support, we are grateful that we will be able to expand this needed service to our community.
