SEASIDE — On Oct. 16, Seaside Elk members assisted with eye screening of Seaside Head Start students when 30 children ages 3 to 5 were screened for eye problems. Any child showing a need for more testing was referred for further screenings.
The Elks Children’s Eye Clinic is the major charitable project of the Oregon State Elks Association. Thanks to grants from the Oregon State Elks Association, the Elks Children’s Eye Clinic developed free vision screenings for Head Start programs and public libraries across the state. Using photo screening technology, refraction, pupil sizes and corneal reflexes are measured instantly.
