Your Eyes are Your Heart Programs
Our SA program focuses on preventing undetected eye problem or disease in children and adults. Failure to have your eyes examined leaves you at risk of having an undetected vision problem that can affect their sight and everyday life.
We accomplish this goal with our Vision Spot Screeners traveling to schools and communities. Vision screening will not take the place of a Comprehensive eye exam but it will give parent the advantage of knowing if their child has an undetected eye disease or condition. Since academic learning is 80% visual and vision problem are best detected early.
Screening is done quickly and parents can leave with a detail report the same day. If a problem is detected we will refer the parent or guardian to an area ophthalmologist. We will follow up with the parent/guardian and ophthalmologist to see how we could further assist the family.
