Spot Camera Screenings
In November, 2019 and January, 2020, volunteers from the Mattapoisett Lions Club used a Spot Vision Camera to screen vision in over 500 children at Center Elementary School and ORR Junior and Senior High Schools. The spot camera scans children's eyes in just seconds identifying potential nearsightedness, farsightedness, gaze deviation, astigmatism, and other eye and/or vision concerns. If something is detected by the Spot Camera, a printout from the machine is given to the school nurse who in turn provides it to parents. Parents are encouraged to have their child complete a full eye exam with their optometrist/opthamologist.
The Lions Club thanks the school nurses for all their help coordinating this project.
