The Lodge and city of Mission Viejo to Fund Free Vision Testing Event
August 17, 2014
With partial funding from the city of Mission Viejo, the Lodge is hosting and funding the first city-wide free vision testing for youths on August 17, 2014 from noon to 5 pm.
The Better Vision for Children Foundation (“BVCF”) will conduct a series of free pre-school vision screenings for city resident youths aged 6 months to 5 years old. This age group is at risk of the common “Lazy Eye” blindness. This comprehensive vision screening, utilizing technology developed by NASA, can help prevent blindness, dyslexia and serious complications from eye cancer. The testing can also detect the early need for eye glasses.
