Crosslake Ideal Lions Contributes $15,000 to Lions KidSight MD5M

Web posted January 11, 2022
The Crosslake Ideal Lions donated $15,000 to the Lions KidSight MD5M this past December.

Lions KidSight MD5M is a nationwide program that safeguards the vision of children 6 months through 6 years. According to educational experts, 80% of learning is visual. So if children can't see well, it is much more difficult for them to learn efficiently. Yet most young children don't get their vision screened until they have problems learning or paying attention in school. By then, it may already be too late. Unless vision problems are detected early and corrected, they risk becoming permanent by age 7.

Lions in the USA already screen over a million kids per year through state-wide and local programs often known as KidSight. Lions KidSight MD5M is part of a national coalition that brings together Lions programs that screen preschool and school age kids.
