James City Lions Club members recently conducted vision screening of 166 kindergarten and third grade students at the school. Six were referred for further evaluation. The students were screened using a "Welch Allyn SPOT Vision Screener". It is a handheld, portable device that can detect focusing issues and provide an assessment of nearsightedness, farsightedness, blurred vision, unequal refractive power, and eye misalignment. During October, the James City Lions and Williamsburg Host Lions Clubs will screen all incoming pre-school, kindergarten and third grade students at the nine Williamsburg-James City County (WJCC) Elementary Schools. Pictured (from left) are Lions Johanna Theloosen (project leader), Boyd Chamberlain, Mary Campbell and school nurse Nikki Montero.
