Members of the Lions Club International Foundation recently visited St. Bernard Middle School in hopes of helping some of the Eagles there see more clearly.
SBM was the first school in Louisiana to receive services from the Sight for Kids Vision Clinic, a mobile vision center, allowing a number of students to meet with a doctor, get an eye exam, receive a prescription, and be fitted for a brand-new pair of glasses.
On Wednesday, September 28, media is invited to attend as those students will receive their glasses — each getting one for school and a spare pair for home.
The Louisiana Lions Eye Foundation is proud to bring this first-of-its-kind, school-based eye health program to St. Bernard Parish, bringing vision care to those in need. During their initial visit, eye professionals performed a visual acuity test and screened for common eye conditions on-site.
The outreach is part of an ongoing partnership with its corporate sponsor, Johnson & Johnson Vision who understand that good vision fosters good learning.
