Troy Lions Club to offer FREE vision screenings for children during Back-to-School Bash at Troy Elementary School in Troy, Alabama [#TroyLionsClub #TroyElementarySchool #TroyAlabama]

Troy Lions Club will offer FREE vision screenings for children ages 5 through 12 during the Back-to-School Bash at Troy Elementary School Saturday, August 3, 2019 in Troy, Alabama.

The screenings will be from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

The Back-to-School Bash is sponsored by the Pike Regional Child Advocacy Center and Troy Church.

According to Dr. Elizabeth Hitchcock, Troy Lions Club member, the FREE vision screenings offered by the Troy Lions Club at this time are focusing primarily on elementary age children, including pre-K.

“Vision screenings are very important for young children. Too often a vision diagnosis goes untreated and often because children don’t know what normal vision is. They might not know that what they are seeing is blurred.”
– Dr. Elizabeth Hitchcock, Troy Lions Club member
