Eye and Vision Screening
Studies have shown that one in four children between the age of 5 and 18 years suffer from some kind of vision problem that impacts his or her learning.
The eye and Vision Department at the Health Center, screened 98% of LMS students and 35% of US students during SY 2016-17. Among 6th through 8th graders, 4 out of 10 students were recommended for a comprehensive eye exam and possibly glasses.
Teachers are informed at least a week before screening is scheduled for their class.
Screening Location: Lithgow Library for LMS grade.
Weekday mornings, 9.45 am-12 p.m.
