The Fort Myers-Edison Kiwanis club and Dr. Bruce Senior and Image Eyewear will offer free back-to-school vision screenings for children going into grades one through five on Saturday, Aug. 9 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Kiwanis Hall located at 1634 Woodford Ave. in Fort Myers.
The vision screenings will be open to the first 200 children arriving with a parent or guardian. No identification will be required, and no personal information will be taken. In addition to the vision screening, each child will receive a free book. The vision screening is not an eye examination, and no tests or refraction will be performed. Whether your child passes or fails this screening, a complete eye examination by a qualified optometrist is recommended before each school year.
“Children and parents are often unaware when their vision isn’t up to par,” said Fort Myers-Edison Kiwanis club president Harris Segel, “Good vision, or lack of it, greatly affects academic and athletic performance.”
Bruce Senior, Doctorate of Optometry, has been serving the community since 1977. Dr. Senior offers comprehensive eye exams to patients of all ages from young children to seniors at his office located at 2277 First Street in Fort Myers. The optical boutique, Image Eyewear, is open Monday through Thursday.
The Fort Myers-Edison Kiwanis club is looking for more service-minded individuals and business professionals who would like to make a direct impact on the community through volunteering. Meetings are held every Thursday at 8 a.m. in Fort Myers. For details on joining the Fort Myers-Edison Kiwanis club, please call club president Harris Segel at (239) 939-4027 or email email@example.com.
