Free Vision Screening Available Saturday At Ingles Parking Lot


June 6, 2019

The Brevard Lions Club is sponsoring another visit by the Lions Vision Van on Saturday, June 8, in the Ingles parking lot from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The 40-foot van from the North Carolina Lions Foundation has equipment for eye screening, including far and near visual acuity, visual field testing and pressure checking.

A local ophth-almologist has volunteered to assist with the free vision screening.

The purpose is early detection of possible eye problems.

Later complete eye exams may be recommended based on the results of the screening. Participants must be at least 6 years old and those under 18 must have a parent sign the registration form at the event.

A significant number of participants with serious eye problems are referred every year for follow-up with an eye professional.

Several severe cases have been discovered, which required immediate attention.

A booth for hearing testing will also be available to identify possible hearing problems.
