   The North Raleigh Lions Club was organized in 1953 as The Millbrook Lions Club. The name was changed to The North Raleigh Lions Club to better reflect the scope of its members and activities. The North Raleigh Club is involved in many local, State, national, and international projects that exemplify our motto "WE SERVE".  Click on the Club projects tab to see some of the projects we are involved in.

A PediaVision machine will perform vision screening on children from six months to six years old.  PediaVision screening can be done in less than 2 minutes by a well trained team.  A team normally consist of three Lions.  The PediaVision equipment  will allow screening  for such eye abnormalities as: Astigmatism, nearsightedness, farsightedness, misalignment of the eyes, unequal refractive power, pupil size anomalies.   If any of these problems are found the parents are advised to take their child to an eye care professional for further assessment. These problems are not always evident by simply looking at the child. Young children often compensate so well that parents, teachers and pediatricians are unaware that there is a problem. The earlier the problem is diagnosed the better the chances that some of these problems can be cured and not just treated.

Children do not have to give any input, they simply look at the PediaVision testing device.  They are usually given a reward or coloring sheet after the test.  Children with eye glasses are tested to make sure their prescription is current.
