Lawton Lions Clubs give free eye screenings

LAWTON, Okla._Just in time for the beginning of school, Lawton Lions Clubs is working to save children’s eyesight. 

The organization provided free eye screenings at the Armed Services YMCA. Twenty-one children between the ages of 6 months and 6 years came to get screenings. Their parents will be given a print-out of any vision abnormalities, such as near or far sightedness or lazy eye, to take to the optometrist. Lawton Noon Lions Club first vice district governor Daniel Farrell says before children go to school, it is critical for them to get their eyes checked.

"What this does is it helps prevent the time go by, where to get these problems fixed and sometimes, for some of the issues, they aren't fixable after they turn seven years old," Farrell said.

The Lawton Lions Clubs will be doing another free screening on Saturday, August 8, at the citywide Back to School Bash at Elmer Thomas Park from 9:00 a.m. until 11:30 a.m.
