KidSight Program

For the past two plus years the Coventry Lions Club has held eye screening exams for the day care and pre-schools in our communities. Our club uses a Spot PediaVision Camera, a top of the line Vision Screening Camera specifically designed for screening children. Spot is powered by sophisticated technology that quickly detects the indication of the following vision issues:

  • :Near-sightedness (myopia)
  • Far-sightedness (hyperopia)
  • Unequal refractive power (anisometropia)
  • Blurred vision, eye structure problem (astigmatism)
  • Pupil size deviations (anisocoria)
  • Eye misalignment (strabismus)

In just seconds, Spot provides a comprehensive, reliable analysis that enables informed decision making about the need for a follow-up diagnosis.

We have been pleased to screen the children in our community preschools. There have been several children identified with vision concerns and this information was shared with their parents. Early detection and proper eye care can help to prevent problems that may cause children difficulty in their school years. Included with the expected findings of common eye and vision concerns, we were able to  identify a youngster with the beginning signs of amblyopia, or lazy eye. The optometrist told the parent that the problem was caught in time and had the amblyopia progressed much further, the child would very likely become blind in the affected eye. I tell you this to emphasize the importance of early vision screening and the equally important annual follow-ups. Check out the attached flyer for more info about our KidSight program.

Please let us know if you would like the Coventry Lions Club to offer these free screenings at your school or day-care.  Also, please include a couple of dates and times that would work for you.

Thank you
