Lions Club to offer free vision screening at Nevada County Fairgrounds

The Foothills Lions Club, in conjunction with the Northern California Lions Sight Association, will provide free vision screening services to adults and children from 1 to 6 p.m. on July 31 at Gate 1 of the Nevada County Fairgrounds. The free testing for adults and children will be a part of Community Involvement Day at the fairgrounds, where community members are encouraged to donate to participating nonprofit organizations. The local Lions Club will utilize the Northern California Lions Sight Association’s Vision Screening Unit, a fully-equipped motor home designed to offer no-cost glaucoma and visual screening services to those who otherwise might not be able to afford it. Special tests will be provided to children ages 6 months to 6 years old using our PlusOptix equipment. Local optometrists, Dr. Kirschbaum, OD, Dr. Jerry Chan, OD and Dr. Tiffany Chan, OD will volunteer their services for the day.
