The Estill County Lions Club

Free vision screenings will be conducted by the Estill County Lions Club during the Mountain Mushroom Festival on Saturday, April 29 (9 a.m. 3 p.m.) in the Davis building at 103 Broadway by the festival grandstand.  The screenings will be done by using the Welch Allyn Spot Camera.  The state-of-the-art cameras use low-level infrared light to take 23 photos in one second.   The process is non-invasive, meaning no one has to be touched, no eye drops are used and the test normally takes only a few seconds to get accurate results. Nothing must be read or repeated.  The test can be done on children as young as 6 months or even less.  These cameras can detect:

        myopia (near-sightedness),

        far-sightedness (hyperopia),

        unequal refractive power (anisometropia),

        blurred vision,

        eye structure problems (astigmatism),

        pupil size deviations (anisocoria) and

        eye misalignment (strabismus).
