Topical, was the action developed under the program WORLD SHARE VISION, of eye screening, at some schools in Prahova villages, Mocesti and Gornet-Cricov, between 10 and 11 October.

The event date was not chosen at random, every year on the second Thursday of October, is celebrated the International Day of Vision, to draw attention at the problems of blindness, visual impairment and rehabilitation of persons with visual disabilities. The tested children, 100 counted, received with enthusiasm the lionistic action. After testing, 20 children were identified with vision problems. The eye screening action has been a real success that is why we intend to repeat this action in November.
