Lions Clubs of Virginia Acquire 8 New Spot Vision Screeners
Date:9/22/2011

LAKE MARY, Fla., Sept. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- PediaVision, maker of the new Spot vision screener, announced today that the Lions Clubs of Virginia are upgrading their PediaVision screening units to the new Spot vision screener.

The Spot screener will be incorporated into the Lions Clubs on-going screening program. Dr. Hauser Weiler, a highly experienced ophthalmologist in Kilmarnock, Virginia, joined the Lions Clubs in 1987.  He has dedicated himself to working with the Lions in many areas of sight and vision screenings, most recently promoting screening of children throughout the state in order to ensure that every child who has a vision problem is identified and helped.

With the new Spot technology, Lion Dr. Hauser hopes that schools throughout Virginia will invite the Lions Clubs in to screen the students.

"I especially ask that the Day Care Centers, both public and private, and the kindergartens, invite us in, as this is the age level where we can have the greatest impact," said Dr. Weiler, who has split 42 years of experience as an ophthalmologist between the United States Navy, Chief of Ophthalmology at Portsmouth Naval Hospital and later, private practice.  "When we screen the younger children, we are able to identify those children at risk for amblyopia (Lazy Eye) as well as those that need vision correction to see clearly, enabling them to function in school and learn."

Amblyopia is a form of blindness in one eye that affects 1 in 50 children.

"Amblyopia is the biggest concern," said Weiler.  "We really only have until the age of 8 to correct it, which means we must identify it early, otherwise there is no chance of reversing it. School screenings don't' start until first grade when children are 6 or 7 years old. If we identify amblyopia at that age, we only have another year and a half or it's over.  So we have to find
