How to do it?
Coordinating with Lions to participate to the screening days. The screening can be done by eye specialists or orthoptists, through an instrument called “autorefractometer”.
Amblyopia consists in the missing development of a normal visive capacity in one of the two eyes and it is provoked by the presence of cross eye, more or less evident, or from the presence of a vision defect that makes the acquisition of images different between the two eyes.
Fulfillment of the Service Activity
In this field our commitment will have to be strong and can be of support to Lions, especially in those days when many Clubs actually implement the activity in the towns’ squares, offering the free of charge screening. To engage the children it could be useful to unite with the screening other Leo Services (School4U, Let’s Play Different, etc…).
It’s not negligible, moreover, the possibility for the Leo Club to become one more interlocutor with the families and schools: no one is able to communicate with young people as well as us!
