The Lions Club screens all pre-school children in West Milford for amblyopia, also called lazy eye, a sight disorder due to the eye and brain not working well together. It results in decreased vision in an eye that otherwise typically appears normal. Amblyopia is the most common cause of decreased vision in a single eye among children and younger adults. The West Milford Lions have screened more than 1,800 children over the past years. The test results are handed over to a local eye doctor to review and the doctor then contacts any parents if there are problems. Superintendent of West Milford schools Dr. Alex Anemone, pictured here at right, was invited to a recent Lions Club meeting as an introduction to what the Lions do for the community. Lions President William Francis, left, is also pictured with vision screening chairperson Lion Barbara Corsaro. Below is a photo of a child being checked for amblyopia.
