Cedarburg Lions Vision Screening

Child vision screening can help identify children who may have undetected eye problems. The Cedarburg Lions Club vision screening team provides FREE vision screening services, performed by certified vision screeners, using scientifically validated age- specific screening protocols. We are able to screen children from 6 months old to 18 years old- no group is too small! Vision screenings, combined with comprehensive eye exams conducted by eye care professionals (not part of the vision screening program) can have a life- long effect on a child’s eye sight. Certain eye conditions, if not detected and treated early, can lead to permanent vision loss and have significant impact on a child’s ability to learn. 80% of learning is visual and undetected vision problems can make it hard to read, learn, maintain attention, and may lead to behavioral issues. If your group is interested in our Vision Screening Services, or if you would like more information, contact the vision screening team at clcvisionscreening@gmail.com.

Lions Eye Bank of Wisconsin

The Lions Eye Bank of Wisconsin, Inc., a nonprofit 501(c)3, is a team of professionals and volunteers dedicated to the mission of restoring the Gift of Sight through recovery and transplantation of corneas, research to advance the knowledge and treatment of eye diseases, and education to increase donations of human eyes after death. Our club supports the Lions Eye Bank financially and As Transporters for the Wisconsin Lions Eye Bank, we transport corneas to and from our main medical facility. There, they recover, evaluate, store and distribute human eye tissue for vision restoration, research and education. Eye surgeons rely on eye banks to supply them with tissue for sight-saving procedures. Additional info can be found at LEBW

Bingo at local Rehab/ Nursing homes

Our Club enjoys hosting Bingo games at the Lasata Senior Living Campus and the Cedar Springs Health and Rehabilitation Center. We visit six times a year bringing a smile on the face of local inhabitants and staff. We are told that the inhabitants look towards our visits. During our 2 to 3 hour visit, we try to entertain the players, even introducing them to some of our pets and young children. It's fun seeing the interactions and knowing that we are making their day.

Adult Literacy Program

The Adult Literacy Center of Ozaukee County provides individualized educational services for adult learners to improve academic and life skills in order to pursue their personal, professional, and life goals. Our Lions club supports the center with funding and some individual tutoring. Low literacy often means living in poverty: 6% of Ozaukee County residents live at or below the poverty level. Increasing levels of literacy can free people from poverty and the need for social services leading to improved employment opportunities and self sufficiency. Please visit www.adultliteracyoz.org.
