Vision and Hearing Screenings
The Burleson Lions Club is conducting vision and hearing screenings in public and private schools. Several members attended training classes to be State of Texas certified in testing the vision and hearing of students. Thanks to the money from the 4th of July parade, the Burleson Lions Club was able to purchase a very expensive camera to test the vision of students. Several members of the club have attended training and are certified to use the camera. Those students who need follow up are referred to a professional optometrist. This camera has been used for children ages 4 & 5, elementary age, older teens, adults, and private school students. These screenings (with the camera or with charts) are supervised by the school nurses. The Burleson Lions Club has screened over 4,500 young people.
