For the eighth year, Plymouth Lions Club volunteers put in countless hours to screen Plymouth students for vision problems.

“We would like to thank the Plymouth Lions Club for their dedication to this yearly screening,” said district nurse Anne Nelson. “Every year we see how our early detection of vision problems has a direct impact on a student’s success in school, affecting both the ability to learn and the enjoyment in learning.”

This year, 720 district students were screened, with 44 of them referred to eye-care professionals for further evaluation.
