  • KIDSIGHT USA PROJECT

    KidSight USA

     

    The Bellville Lions Club has received our Plusoptix Vision Screening equipment! Daniel Berry from the Plusoptix company and Lion Mike Wilson our district 2-S5 Lions Kidsight USA chair came to train and certify the following Lions to operate the equipment: Lions Wiley Barton, Tony Stewart, Doug Lottridge, Paul Martinez, Ken Peters, Dale May, Garret Dornon, Kyle Freitag, Reese Turner, Newton Boriack, and Jess Koy.

     

    Lions KidSight USA is a nationwide program to safeguard the vision of children aged 6 months through 6 years. According to educational experts, 80% of learning is visual. So if a child can’t see well, he can’t learn well. Yet most young children don’t get their vision screened until they have problems learning or paying attention in school. By then, it may already be too late. Unless vision problems are detected early and corrected, they risk becoming permanent by age 7.

     

    Lions in the USA already screen over a million kids per year through state-wide and local programs often known as “KidSight.” Lions KidSight USA is a national coalition that brings together Lions programs that screen preschool and school age kids, concentrating on children from 6 months to 6 years of age in order create a coordinated national program.

     

    Our mission is to ensure eye screening and follow-up care is given to all kids because every child deserves to learn and see the world clearly. To do this, we will work with Lions to increase the number of screening programs around the country in order to reach more children when it is possible and where it is needed.

    KIDSIGHT USA- Using our recently purchased Plusoptix Vision Screening machine (see photo above), we will be formulating a community service program to screen our area youth for vision problems. We will be screening children from the ages of 8 months to 6 years old at no cost to the parents. If a problem is detected, the machine will recognize it and print the necessary information on a slip to take to an Optometrist for evaluation.

     

    RED RIBBONS- Each year, the Bellville Lions Club purchases 1550 Red Ribbons that are distributed to the students at O'Bryant Primary School, O'Bryant Immediate School and Bellville Junior High School. The Red Ribbon Campaign is designed to encourage healthy, drug-free and violence-free lifestyles among our youth.

     

    OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOUTH- Each year students compete in a local, district, and state wide competition in one or more of the following categories: 1) Diabetes Awareness Speech 2) Drug Awareness Speech 3) Outstanding Youth Award. The contests are open to all high school Juniors and Seniors and scholarship money is awarded as they advance through each level of the competition.

     

    PEACE POSTERS- The Peace Poster Contest was created to give young people the opportunity to creatively express their feelings for world peace and to share their visions with the world. The Bellville Lions Club hosts an annual contest for the local youth and the winner can advance all the way to the International contest, earning prize money along the way!

     

    EYEGLASS PROGRAM- For years the Bellville Lions Club has been helping kids in need of eyeglasses. The school nurses usually send over an application for one of the children and the Board of Directors approves the cost of the doctor visit and first set of eyeglasses. Many teachers and parents have reported significant improvements in their child and the Bellville Lions Club is proud to help out!
