Dear Parent/Guardian, (paper copy sent home January 3, 2019)
Regular vision screening is important and the
American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) suggests that children are screened “every
one to two years for ages 3 to 19.”
Mount Olive Ev. Lutheran School, in
collaboration with the Appleton Noon Lions Club, will be providing free vision
screening to children enrolled in 3K-8 during the month of January. This screening is made possible through
grants from St. Elizabeth Hospital/Affinity Health System and from the
Pfefferle Family Foundation. Volunteers
from the Appleton Noon Lions Club will be doing the screening with a SPOT
Camera at Mount Olive.
To effectively address vision issues in
children, SPOT Camera, an automated vision screening technology, has been
developed to quickly detect the most common treatable vision conditions in
children such as:
SPOT takes a picture from about 3 feet away
and parents are provided with a printed summary of the vision screening. The
screening time for students is typically less than 20 seconds.
Automated screening does not replace a complete and comprehensive eye examination by an
optometrist or ophthalmologist, nor can it detect all eye diseases or
conditions. Screening determines if your
child requires the immediate attention of a vision care specialist.
If you do not wish to have your child
participate in this vision screening, please contact the office by January 11th
at 920-739-9194, by email firstname.lastname@example.org,
or by sending in a written note.
