Iowa KidSight is a joint project of the Lions Clubs of Iowa and the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital, Department of Ophthalmology & Visual Sciences, dedicated to enhancing the early detection and treatment of vision impairments in young children (target population 6 months of age through kindergarten) in Iowa communities through screening and public education.
The goals of the project are:
Objectively screen vision in infants and young children throughout all of Iowa's 99 counties -- for FREE.
Educate the public about the risk of undetected vision loss.
Identify ways to sustain vision screening programs of this type.
