Project Kidsight is a free vision screening program for children from ages six months to five years that local Lions Club volunteers conduct periodically throughout the year. We will screen older children as well.
Our state of the art PediaVision digital camera quickly takes a picture of the child's eyes and immediately lets us know the results of the analysis. A report can be printed on-site indicating the "Pass" or "Refer" status, along with all pertinent detail. "Pass" indicates that no vision problem was detected at this time, while "Refer" recommends that the child be seen by an eye care professional, with the reason for the referral indicated. The system, which is completely non-invasive, has an accuracy rating of 98%.
Conditions which are checked for include:
- Anisometropia (difference in eye strength)
- Astigmatism (blurred vision)
- Hyperopia (farsightedness)
- Myopia (nearsightedness)
- Corneal reflexes/Strabismus (asymmetric vision)
- Anisocoria (unequal pupils)
