A free vision screening program for young children from about 6 months old to 5 years old conducted by members of Lions and Lioness clubs. Project KidSight uses a PediaVision digital camera which takes a picture of a child’s eyes and analyzes results.  Children either get a “pass” or “refer” status. Those with “refer” results get a recommendation to make an appointment with an eye care professional. Lions members conduct screening of preschoolers at Head Start programs and schools, libraries and homeless shelters, festivals and community events, and at Lion’s events.
