Enterprise Lions participate in Vision Screening for our youth and at-risk populations. Utilizing “The Spot”, an infrared camera that combines auto-refraction and video-retinoscopy, a highly accurate picture of the participants’ eyes can be acquired in as little as five seconds. If the camera detects any abnormalities, a report can be printed and the participant is advised to take their report to their eye
doctor for a complete exam.
Enterprise Lions has worked with our school nurses to provide youth vision screening. We have also worked with other community service organizations to screen Veterans and homeless populations in the Redding area.
