(KAIT) -

Over the course of the summer, free vision screenings will be held for children between 6 months old and 12 years old. 

A team of Jonesboro University Heights Lions Club members will use a SPOT vision screening device to take a "snapshot" of childrens' eyes.

If any abnormalities are found, a printed form will suggest that the child's parent or guardian will take them to an eye doctor to determine if there is a problem.

The schedule is as follows:

  • June 18: McAdams Public Library in Lake City, 106 Cobean Blvd., 6:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m.
  • July 9: Marked Tree Public Library in Marked Tree, 102 Locust St., 1:00 p.m.-2:00 p.m.
