The Louisiana Lions Cubsight Program recently offered a free vision screening to students in grades pre-kindergarten through fourth grade at Holy Cross Elementary School. The test provides instant photographs of a child’s eyes and determines the presence of eye disorders including far and nearsightedness, astigmatism, strabismus (crossed or misaligned eyes), anisometropia (unequal refractive power), and media opacities (cataracts). The information obtained from this vision screening is preliminary only, and parents are contacted with the results of the screening. They are responsible for arranging for a complete eye exam if the child has been referred as a result of the screening test.
