Vision Services

Lions Clubs were challenged by Helen Keller in 1925 to becone "Knights for the Blind". This has been a major purpose since that time.

The Painesville Lions Club works to help people living in the  area who need vision services when they can't afford them. We have been helping our neighbors in Painesville and nearby communities for the last 75+ years.

The larger part of our clients need eye exams and eyeglasses.
