What's New & What's Happening
*** Free Vision screening events to be held next Tuesday August 16th, 2016
and Thursday August 18th, 2016 in Jonesboro ***
Free vision screening sessions for children between six months and twelve years old to determine if they might have any vision problems will be held next Tuesday, August 16th, from 10 am to noon at the Public Library, 315 W. Oak, and again on Thursday morning, August 18th from 8 am to noon at the Pre-Kindergarten/Kindergarten Center at 1307 Flint Street. Using a
sophisticated SPOT vision screening device, a team of Jonesboro University Heights Lions Club members, led by Dr. Tom Woods, will take a quick "snapshot" of children's' eyes, and if any bnormalities are seen by the device, a printed form will be generated suggesting that the child's parent or guardian take the child to an eye doctor to learn if there is a problem.
Since May of 2015, the club has screened over 600 children in Craighead County for vision problems. Any group wishing to schedule another no-cost vision screening event for children aged 6 months to twelve years of age should contact the club's SPOT Sub-Committee Chairman, Dr. Tom Woods, at 910-214-1209.
