Subject: Thank you to the East Cobb Lions Club

Hello Ed,

I just wanted to let you know we have a parent that is very appreciative of the vision screening the Lions Club did for us back in the fall. Her daughter is a first grader. Your screening showed some issues, even though our county eye chart screening showed that she passed and she had always passed the vision screening at the pediatrician’s office. We sent the pdf file home and our counselor followed up with the mother at that time. There was a meeting today with the mother and she let us know the student has some major vision issues that are being addressed by a pediatric opthalmologist.  She was very thankful for the Lions Club for discovering she had some vision issues.


We hope to have you come back next fall for our screening. We will be in touch.

Thank you for all you do!
