Free Vision Screenings Offered to Preschoolers

Charles City, IA – The Charles City Lions Club is helping young children as they are offering free visions screenings coming up in October.

The club purchased a $10,000 camera that five Lions Club members are trained to use. Tad Barry, the club’s president, says that the only thing needed is the parent’s permission.

Results will be sent back to the parents in two to four weeks with results either saying there is no issue or that something isn’t right. These tests are for kids who are six months old to those who are in preschool.

The Lions Club has been doing these tests on children for years. The club is working with the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital.

Chris was born in Webster City and raised in Charles City. As a young kid, he would always be caught singing along to songs on the radio. He says he's good at karaoke but we think otherwise. ;) In his free time, he enjoys beginning new projects at home and hardly ever finishing them. Chris lives in Charles City with his wife Vicki, daughter Brynlee and son Jaxon.
