2010 Alaska State Fair

Our Anchorage Lions in service to our community.

    Our vision screening crew checked the eye sight of 43 individuals Thursday, September 2, 2010, at the Alaska State Fair. We were able to identify 10 people who needed to be referred for additional testing. A fair visitor also come to us to thank us for identifying the vision problems of a youngster last year. The referral led to treatment. Without treatment, blindness would have resulted because of a hole in the child's retina. Treatment has now cured the problem. We, as Lions, do make a difference.
