Free Vision Screening for Young Children, 6 months to 6 years

KidSight in conjunction with the Ferguson-Florissant School District’s Parents as Teachers program will offer free vision screenings on November 24, 2014, 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the James J Eagan Center, #1 James J. Egan Drive in Florissant. The screening takes just seconds and requires nothing of the child except his attention. Using a Plusoptix photoscreening device the technician quickly and noninvasively takes a picture of each child’s eyes and the device produces an immediate “pass” or “fail”. The screening will detect a variety of vision problems including: Nearsightedness, farsightedness, amblyopia, astigmatism, anisometropia, anisocoria, misalignment and possible cataract.
