About 7-15% of kids screened – 200,000 – will be referred for a follow-up exam by an eye-care professional. Approximately 5% of all children in this age group will have amblyopia, a treatable disorder that can result in permanently reduced vision when not addressed by an early age. The screening devices detect risk factors for amblyopia, such as strabismus (eyes that cross or wander out), refractive errors and unequal vision between the two eyes, and potentially even more serious issues such as cataracts and eye cancer.

Change a Life by Becoming a Vision Screener
With just a short training session, any Lion or volunteer can screen the vision of a child. Just push a few buttons and the screening devices used in KidSight do all the work for you. Screening devices even generate the results immediately for easy management of screening results. It’s simple, it’s fun, and there’s nothing more rewarding than helping a child!

At just three years old, a boy named Cross received through a Lions’ KidsSight USA screening in Colorado, USA. Through that screening, Cross and his family learned had extreme vision loss and was struggling to see the world around him. Cross was quickly fitted with what he called his “magic glasses” and was finally able to see his parents faces. Fifteen years later, Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) caught up with Cross to see what life looks like now.
