Lions Eye Screening – Day 1

21 June, 2023 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Lions Eye Screening - Day 1 1

The Lions Eye Health Program is offering Free Vision Screening for school children in Year’s 3 and 6. The screening will be conducted by Busselton & Vasse Lions Clubs at Vasse Primary School.

Over 80% of what children learn is processed through their eyes. Untreated eye conditions can affect a child’s development. It is estimated 1 in 5 children in Australia have undetected vision problems. Screenings can help identify children who may require further eye review/testing.

Members of the Lions club have been specifically trained to perform 4 vision screening assessments including:

  1. Visual Acuity – using a Lea 3m -15 line Symbol Chart
  2. Colour Vision – using a Quick 6 – Basic Colour Screening Book
  3. Depth Perception – using a Stereo Fly Screening Tool
  4. Spot Vision Screener – State of the art portable machine designed to screen for Myopia (near sightedness),Hyperopia (far sightedness), Astigmatism (blurred vision), Anisometropia (unequal refractive power),Strabismus (eye misalignment) and Anisocoria (unequal pupil size).

The individual screening takes just a few minutes to perform. There is no physical contact made with the child and no eye drops are administered. Individual reports will sent to parents. If a vision problem is detected, this will be written on the child’s result sheet and you will be encouraged to seek a further eye assessment with an eye health professional.
