Recommendations for A Successful Vision Screening:
Determine a date, time, and place for your screening. Give yourself enough time to plan properly. Reserve the van as soon as possible. Set aside approximately 6 to 8 hours for the event. Location is everything. Hold your event somewhere with a lot of traffic (shopping centers, health fairs, cultural festivals, etc.). If necessary, make sure that you have received the appropriate permission to park the van at your location. The van is approximately 37 feet long and 9 feet wide including the side mirrors.
Secure the services of at least two optometrists or ophthalmologists as soon as possible. The more advance notice you give the better your chance of securing their services. At present, we have a CT-80 Computerized Tonometer, a Titmus 2A Reader on board with a hand held Tonometer and Plus Optics. Doctor must provide their own solution.
On the day of the event, make sure you have enough members to adequately staff the entire day. There should be at least 3 to 4 Lions present at all times to help with registration, assisting the doctor, etc.
