Flying Lions offer free vision screening
The Mendenhall Flying Lions are offering free vision screening for preschool children at the Nugget Mall on Saturday, Feb. 12, Noon - 4p.m. The Lions will be using a Photoscreener to perform a simple non-invasive accurate screening of young and non-verbal children for eye disorders. The resultant photograph will be examined to determine the presence of any of six major pediatric eye problems including hyperopia and myopia, anisometropia, media opacities, strabismus and astigmatism.

Parents are encouraged to bring children 6 months to 5 years or those with limited verbal ability.
