Aiken Mid-Day Lions Club
Members of the Aiken Mid-Day Lions Club conducted vision screenings on children enrolled in the community’s Head Start Program on September 9 and 11. The Welch Allyn Vision Screener was used to evaluate the childen for potential refractive errors associated with poor vision, and referrals to eye care professionals were provided when needed. Students from Aiken Technical College’s Associate Degree Nursing Program helped with vision screening, and they also conducted hearing tests for the children.
