Ocala, FL: The Andrew Dixon Foundation (ADF) will celebrate Back to School Month this September by offering vision screenings for the youths in Clarendon and St. Catherine. The Foundation will partner with Eglise Baptiste de Clermont to perform screening for common childhood vision problems. The screenings are scheduled for 27-30 September 2018 at Gregory Park Primary School in St. Catherine and various locations in Clarendon. A complete schedule of events will be available in the coming weeks.
“The screenings are painless and take just minutes,” said Andrew Dixon, president of the Andrew Dixon Foundation. “While vision screening is not a substitute for a comprehensive eye exam; it provides parents a tool to best prepare their children for success in the classroom”.
Vision screenings are the most cost-effective way to detect vision problems in children. The Foundation provides vision screenings for children who are in need of optometric services and provides products at an affordable price. ADF performs vision evaluations, to include an initial screening, and makes available a wide assortment of affordable products for purchase.
Early detection and treatment are the keys to preventing childhood vision loss. If you would like to speak with a representative from the Foundation about the screening event, please contact Hopeton Brown at [email protected] or 215-888-8432.
