Exciting News! The HLC is purchasing a SPOT Vision Screener in 2017!
After a year of fundraising, the HLC now has the funds to purchase a Spot Vision Screener to be used in the greater Hewitt community at no cost to the public. The Spot Vision Screener is a handheld, portable device designed to help users quickly and easily detect vision issues on patients from 6 months of age through adult. Spot screens both eyes at once from a nonthreatening 3-foot distance. The touch-screen display allows for one-touch activation, simple management of patient data entry, and easy configuration for both vision screening and autorefraction applications. Having a Spot Vision Screener will enable parents/guardians to potentially catch vision issues early and follow up with specialists when needed.
