Lions conduct CubSight screenings
THE POST-SIGNAL / Steve Bandy
Members of the Crowley Lions Club visited St. Michael Catholic School earlier this week to conduct CubSight, a vision screening program developed by the Louisiana Lions Eye Foundation. It is a preventative program using a specialized camera to identify vision impairment in young children. Above, Lions Nancy Loewer (left), Keith Frederick (seated) and Ann Mire conduct the testing in one of the kindergarten classes at the school. Two teams of local Lions, accompanied by Walter Peat, state CubSight chairman, visited the school this week. The Crowley Lions Club is one of many throughout the state that conduct CubSight screenings at area schools. Since its inception in 2001, CubSight and the Louisiana Lions have visited 8,850 sites and screened more than 350,000 children. CubSight is sponsored by the Lions Clubs International Foundation, LSU Health Science Center, Louisiana Office of Public Health and the donations of Lions Clubs of Louisiana. Parents of the screened children will be contacted if a potential problem is discovered.
