On Monday, August 6th, the Whitewater Lions Club helped out the New Berlin Lions at the Wisconsin State Fair by conducting free vision screening for kids. Using the Plus Optix camera, they screened 123 kids between the ages of six months and 12 years old. There were nine referrals handed out to the parents so they could follow up with the eye doctor of choice. Helping prevent blindness is one of the main focuses of all Lions Clubs worldwide. The Whitewater Lions Club also conducts vision screening during the school year at all Whitewater Elementary schools.
