Free Vision Screenings
The Missouri Lion's Eye Research Foundation is sponsoring free vision screenings for children ages 6 months to 6 years. Only 15 percent of preschoolers ever undergo an eye exam, but if vision problems are left undiagnosed and untreated, they can effect a child's ability to learn in school and could lead to permanent vision loss. Hours for this free screening event are 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. today and on Sunday from 11:30 to 4:30 p.m. At the Saint Louis Science Center. For more information about these non-invasive screenings, go to www.mlerf.org or call the Foundation at 800-753-2265. Read our story about the screenings here.
