Iowa KidSight Program

Free vision screening will be offered to children by the Fort Dodge Noon Lions Club. Screenings are in conjunction with Iowa KidSight, in the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences at the University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital. Vision screening produces images of a child's eyes to determine the presence of eye disorders including far- and near-sightedness, astigmatism, anisometropia (unequal refractive power), strabismus (misaligned eyes), and media opacities (e.g., cataracts). No physical contact is made with a child and no eye drops are used during the vision screening. This screening is approximately 85-90% effective in detecting problems that can cause reduced vision.

Participation is voluntary. This screening is designed for children 6 months of age through Kindergarten. Children who are younger than 6-months old will not be screened. No child will be screened without a signed and completed consent form. Each individual child needs his/her own consent form. If you have questions, please contact: Iowa KidSight, 2431 Coral Court #5, Coralville, Iowa 52241, or 319-353-7616, or
