Karen Berry spoke about the mission of the Lions Kid Sight to ensure that eye screening and proper follow up care is provide to all kids up to pre-kindergarten. She said that there is about 12.1 million children that are being screened. This means that less than 21% have been pre-screened. The reason that eye screening is so important is that 80% of what you learn is visual. Here are some of the eye problems that the eye screenings find. Some of the problems are Anisometropia, Astigmatism, Myopia, Hyperopia, Anisocoria and Corneal Reflexes.
