Lions Assisted Medical Project. (LAMP)

For those who are not familiar with LAMP, it stands for Lions Assisted Medical Project. It's a vision screening and comprehensive eye exam program where Lions provide to about 25 to 30 people who cannot normally afford that care. If warranted, prescription eyeglasses or reading eyeglasses are provided at no cost to a person or a person who meets the financial needs requirement.

On Saturday, July 9,2016, the Williamsburg Host Lions Club and the James City Lions Club joined forces at the Williamsburg Quarter Path Rec Center to conduct a visual screening and comprehensive eye examinations for 24 local residents that cannot normally afford vision care. During the event, prescription eyeglasses were ordered for 18 people, two people were given reading eyeglasses and two people were referred for additional treatment. Our thanks to the staff at Quarter Path Rec Center, Optician Joy Rosser, Drs. Amanda Paull, Jeanne Ruff, Pam Lundberg, and all the Lions who worked to make this a successful project.
