Lori Short presented on Iowa KidSight, a joint project of Lions Club of Iowa and the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, at the LCECI Board meeting in December. Iowa KidSight is dedicated to enhancing the early detection and treatment of vision impairments in Iowa’s young children through screening and public education.
The goals of the project are:
Objectively screen vision in infants and young children throughout all of Iowa’s 99 counties. – for FREE.
Educate the public about the risk of undetected vision loss.
Identify ways to sustain vision screening programs of this type.
