The Numbers Are In

Our Lion year runs July 1 through June 30.  We start the year running, lining up schools, home schools, and pre-schools to offer free vision screening to children.

When we screen a child's eye, we let the PlusOptix screener do the work.  We aren't medical professionals and don't diagnose.  But the computer will identify any abnormalities in a child's eye and give a report of REFER if it found something wrong.

So far this year, we have screened at the following locations:

  • Auke Bay Elementary School (preschoolers):  screened 107 children with 7 referrals
  • Infant and Baby Fair:  screened 37 infants and toddlers with 4 referrals
  • Faith Community Christian School:  screened 53 children with 14 referrals
  • Gastineau Elementary School:  screened 120 preschool, kindergarten, first graders, and miscellaneous other children that had questionable eyesight with 19 referrals
  • Glacier Valley Elementary School:  screened 213 children with 42 referrals
  • Haines Elementary School, Haines, Alaska:  Screened 137 children with 9 referrals
  • Harborview Elementary:  screened 121 preschool to kindergarten with 23 referrals
