Now your thinking who are these Lions?

What’s in it for them?

Are they trained professionals?

Let me answer some of your questions:

Who are these Lions.

The International Association of Lions Clubs, more commonly known as Lions Clubs International, is an international non-political service organization established originally in 1916. As of January 2020, it had over 46,000 local clubs and more than 1.4 million members (including the youth) in more than 200 countries and geographic areas around the world.

Lions Clubs plan and participate in a variety of service projects. Examples include donations to hospices, or community campaigns. They also support International Foundations such as Sight First and Lions World Sight Day, which was launched in 1998 to draw world media attention to the plight of sight loss in the developing world.[9]

The Lions focus on work for the blind and visually impaired began when Helen Keller addressed the international convention  on 30 June 1925 and charged Lions to be Knights of the Blind.

Which brings us to,

Why are they here:

The Lions take vision loss very seriously, especially when it comes to children, so they established Lions Kid Sight USA (www.lionskidsightusa.org).

Lions KidSight USA is a nation-wide program bringing Lions clubs across the country together to ensure our children receive eye screenings and follow-up care when needed. They train and mobilize caring people to be able to easily and efficiently screen the vision of our nation’s  children to help ensure they receive early academic and social development success.— guided by the fact that 80% of a child’s learning and development requires healthy, corrected vision.

What’s in it for them?

Absolutely nothing except the good feeling they have done their part to better their local community and live up to the promise they made all those year ago to Helen Keller. So there will be no charge to you. They will not ask you or your clientele for a donation. They will simply serve with a smile.

Are they trained professionals?

Your local Lions have purchased at their expense one of the Best vision screeners on the market, called an Autorefractor.

It might look like this:


With this devise they can screen any child 6 months and up. Which means this will be the very first vision screen many children will ever get. It is just like taking a photo and only takes seconds. Which means your lions can screen hundred of children quickly and accurately.

Your Lion’s have been well trained in the use of this device and have met all your state requirements for screening.


Vision Facts

Vision disorders are among the MOST prevalent disabling childhood conditions.
80% of what a child learns is visually

Vision problems can lead to loss of sight, learning difficulties & delayed development.
And yet:
Less than 21% of preschool-aged children have their vision screened.
Some Lion’s clubs are now offering advanced hearing screening as well. Ask your local club.
