This is a District 4-L5 endorsed project.
Loma Linda Lions Eye Foundation, Inc. (LLLEF) offers services throughout Riverside and San Bernardino Counties through a partnership with the Loma Linda Pediatric Ophthalmology Department. Through this partnership we are able to offer needed financial help and care to families of children with vision issues that may be corrected with the use of corrective eyewear, vision therapy or surgery. Funds raised by LLLEF might also be used by parents of the pediatric patients to help offset the cost of transportation or hotel visits while there child is undergoing treatment.
LLLEF and LLUPOD also recently partnered with the District 4-L5 Lions KidSight USA Program to coordinate the vision screening of children between the ages of 6 months and 6 years of age at preschools throughout District 4-L5. This program provides Lions members who visit the preschool perform the vision screening, report the results to the school nurse or director and in turn the parent will be notified if a follow up examination is recommended. A list of Ophthalmologists & Optometrists in the area will be furnished to the parents and they will make the arrangements for follow up exams. Within a few weeks of the exam at the school the parents will be contacted by Lions to check and see if the child has been seen by a Dr. for follow up.
The Lions KidSight USA is a nationwide program through Lions Club International to evaluate children before the age of seven years when vision problems are most easily corrected and most often unnoticed. Our goal at Loma Linda Lions Eye Foundation is to help parents of all backgrounds and financial need help assure that vision problems are found at an early age so that every possible measure can be taken to preserve the vision of the child.
The Mission of Loma Linda Lions Eye Foundation is to help preserve the vision of underserved children with Riverside and San Bernardino Counties.
