Lions Eyemobile – Free Health Screenings
Since its inception, the Eyemobile has provided a variety of health screenings to well over 25,000 children and adults. Services include vision, hearing, and blood pressure screenings on a gratis basis.
The Eyemobile is used at local health fairs, school functions, parades, county fairs, community functions and other Lion sponsored activities. Emphasis is directed towards the elderly, African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans and children; most are high-risk groups for eye related diseases.
In many cases the local Lions clubs fund the next level of treatment, or help find low cost treatment when screenings indicate possible health problems.
