I Can See Clearly Now

 

Vision screenings are designed to check eyesight, or sharpness of vision.

Sharpness of vision or visual acuity is recorded as a fraction, e.g. 20/20.  This means that a person can read a line of type standing 20 feet (or six meters) from an eye chart.

Vision screenings are done to separate those with and without possible vision problems. Screening results may indicate a potential need for further assessment. Vision screening is not a substitute for a complete eye and vision evaluation by an eye doctor.

On January 20th, the Wahiawa Lions Club donated their time to perform vision checks on participating students in grade K-8.  A report card of the results were sent home in each student’s Friday folder.  109 students were screened, 23% were given recommendations to make followups appointments with their doctors.

Thank you Wahiawa Lions Club for the gift of your time!
