This FREE vision machine assessment allows for someone to simply look into the viewfinder, 100% pain free testing, and it will assess for possible eye diseases and vision issues. It also will work with children as young as 6 months old. It offers a chance for people who have not see the eye Dr. in a while to get a quality screening to see if there are any eye issues that should be addressed. If the assessment shows that further testing is needed let us know! We partner with a local eye doctor, Dr. Kelly of DuPage Family Eye Care, to help assist with eye exams and corrective vision aids.

Since 1917, Lions clubs have offered people the opportunity to give something back to their communities. From involving members in projects as local as cleaning up an area park or as far-reaching as bringing sight to the world's blind, Lions clubs have always embraced those committed to building a brighter future for their community.

Our programs are continually changing to meet new needs and greater demands, but our mission has never wavered: "We Serve."

We Serve - more than a motto - it's who we are.

 

Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization with more than 1.4 million members in approximately 46,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas around the world.
