Wednesday,  19 November and Thursday, 20 November 2014,  members from Lions Club Ploiesti, went at the kindergarten with normal and extended program, “Crai nou”, from Ploiesti (Prahova county), kindergarten where currently exist 6 groups  of 160 children with extended program,  and 3 groups  of 75 children with normal program. They continued the free eye screening program, started in October, for a total of 85 children.

In this project launched by Lions Clubs International and  took over by Lions Club District 124 Romania,  Lions Club Ploiesti  has been organizing  since 2010, many eye screening actions  for testing children from schools or kindergartens, within the city of Ploiesti and Prahova County.

Children detected with eye problems were guided by an ophthalmologist, present at the screening, to a medical office to do more tests. Lions Club members prepared surprises for children and gave them chocolate after testing.

Measurements were performed for free, using next-generation device PLUSOPTIX. The device allows visual examination of the basic parameters from an early age (4-6 months), the actual measurement is easy to be done, and the child comfort during testing is maximum. Are measured and analyzed in fractions of a second: refraction, pupillary diameter, direction and interpupillar distance.

Through its work, Ploiesti Lions Club wants to be a partner of the community within they serve.

The main objective is to support children to obtain performance and reduce gaps for disadvantaged children.

Action "Clear view, healthy eyes" is a small, but very important gesture for the health of children. It is known that eye disease in children is a major obstacle in education and future.  If the detection of ocular diseases is faster, therapeutic success will be greater.

"Clear view, healthy eyes" is the motto, under the sign that Lions Club members will attend with dedication, like last year, at the children eyes screening actions, hoping that through their unconditional help will identify and reduce vision problems.




Lions Clubs International is the largest humanitarian service organization in the world, made up of people with a recognized moral and social position, able to improve the fate of the poor, united by friendship and animated by the desire to serve.
