PediaVision to Conduct Free Screenings With "Spot" at Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club
Date:3/21/2012

BRONX, N.Y., March 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- For the first time in state of New York, PediaVision will provide free vision screenings using the revolutionary new Spot screener for approximately 125 of the children at Boys & Girls Club of Kips Bay, Coudert Clubhouse, 1835 University Avenue, Bronx, New York, on Thursday, March 22 beginning at 3 p.m. 

To ensure those identified with potential vision issues from the Spot screening are provided with the necessary follow-up care, VSP® Vision Care will be providing them with gift certificates for a free comprehensive eye exam and eye glasses which can be redeemed at a local VSP doctor's office.

PediaVision will be in New York City to conduct demonstrations at Vision Expo East, held March 23-25 at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City. 

"Traveling up to New York for the vision conference, we thought it would be good idea to offer a screening event to the Boys & Girls Club," said David Melnik, president and chief executive officer of PediaVision. "Children are not always identified through standard screenings, or not screened at all, and it's very important for their future in school to make certain they don't have any vision problems."

Vision screenings are recommended for children of all ages.  Yet, everyday over 12 million school-age children in the U.S. continue to struggle to see the blackboard or read their textbooks.

Spot can assess a child's vision with accuracy, unmatched speed and deliver immediate comprehensive results.  The new device has an incredibly quick capture time of one second or less, which makes screening equally efficient in a physician's office or for a large-scale public screening.

Daniel Quintero, executive director of the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club, was recently made aware of Spot and was able to secure use of the revolutionary new vision-screening device.
