SPOT Camera Vision Screenings for School Age Children

The vision screening committee consists of trained Lions who comprise the club’s Eye Squad.  All members of the Eye Squad are trained to use the Spot Camera to evaluate the vision of children ages 6 months to age 19 (typically only pre-school through eighth grade).   Usually in the beginning of the school year, the Squad, in conjunction with school nurses in Eatontown and the surrounding area, screens the sight of over 2,500 students. The camera can identify six different sight anomalies ranging from Astigmatism to Myopia (nearsightedness). Results are provided to the nurse and a printed copy of a report is provided to the nurse for record keeping and notification to parents if need for an appointment with an eye doctor indicated.
