View current and upcoming fundraising events for Houston Cy-Fair Lions Club:
The Houston Cy-Fair Lions present the 17th Annual Lions Biking for Sight Century Bike Ride on Sunday, October 2nd, 2016. The ride begins at 8 AM at the Montgomery Athletic Complex. Due to numerous road improvements, we have been requested to revise our routes this year. We now have a new 100 mile route that can easily be changed to 70 or 85 miles depending on you feel at several of our new turns. Please bring a copy of our map which you should find below.
Houston Cy-Fair Lions Club is committed to promoting and saving vision. Some vision problems, if not caught and treated early, can lead to permanent blindness. Typical vision screening normally starts when a child enters school, where a child reads from a chart 10 feet away and only checks for the ability to see far away. We use a special camera by Plusoptix, which takes a picture of the child’s eyes, and within 30 seconds, and can detect vision problems including nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, unequal pupil size, “lazy eye”, and other problems. With this device, we can easily and successfully screen children from six months of age and older. Children with vision problems are not aware that they cannot see well, as they cannot compare their vision to others. Vision problems in children do not cause pain or inflammation, so parents and teachers are not aware that there is a problem. The Plusoptix Vision Screener gives us a message of PASS or REFER immediately at the screening. Children who are referred should be seen by a professional for a complete vision examination.
