The Haddam Killingworth Early Childhood Council, in cooperation with the Killingworth Lions Club and RSD #17 is sponsoring vision screening for children ages 2-5 years.
Pediavision Screening is one of the vision programs that the Lions Club International Foundation offers worldwide. Through the use of a digital screener, the PediaVision program can identify a variety of eye problems in young children that might otherwise go undiagnosed until they are much older. Undetected vision problems can slow learning and even lead to possible loss of sight. Early detection can help provide treatment when it is most effective.
Parents must sign a consent form for children to be screened. No physical contact is made with the child and no eye drops will be administered. The child may sit on the parent's lap for the screening. Parents will receive written results of the test stating that no problems have been detected or recommending that the child see an eye care professional for follow-up.
