Tuesday, October 11, 2016, members from Lions Club Ploiesti, went at the general school from Ploiestiori (Prahova county), to participate at the eye screening for the children from O and first classes.

They performed free eye screening for a total of 53 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 disorders were guided by an ophthalmologist, present in the screening, to a medical office to do more tests. Lions Club members prepared surprises for children and gave them chocolate eggs 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 maxim.

Are measured and analyzed in fractions of a second: refraction, pupillary diameter, direction and inter pupillary distance.

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, the children's eye 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.
