Eighty percent of all vision impairment can be prevented or cured.  Early identification timely referral, professional treatment, and improved or restored sight.  Lions provide vision screening designed to detect diseases affecting adults.

Diabetic Retinopathy

The most common cause of vision loss among people who have diabetes.  Vision loss is associated with chronically high blood sugar levels.  

Retinitis Pigmentosa

A rare, degenerative disease that affects the retina's ability to respond to light.  The disease is inherited and causes a gradual decline in vision.  

Macular Degeneration 

Vision loss occurs when the central portion of the retina deteriorates from a combination of hereditary and environmental reasons.  

Detached Retina

Spots, floaters, and flashes of light are the warning signs of a detached retina.  Vision may become blurry or poor.  Another sign is seeing a shadow or a curtain descending from the top or side of the eye
