David and Roxanne Aldridge, members of the Oakman Lions Club, accepted the Atmore Lions Club’s invitation and represented Alabama Lions Sight, at Williams Station Day on Saturday, October 28. This couple is part of the Mobile Screening Program which screens for vision problems.
On November 17, the Mobile Eye Unit will be at the Escambia County Health Department Atmore office for a full eye exam for $20. Glasses will also be available if needed, for a minimal charge.
Saturday’s screening found 17 Atmore citizens who were screened having a vision problem which needs to be addressed. Those needing services should call 251-368-9188 to set up an appointment on the 17th.
Unique about this visit on Saturday was the use of the new Titmus equipment which allows screenings to be done outside instead of in a dark room, thus making services available almost anywhere. Alabama Lions Sight has only one of these in the state, but a second one has been purchased and should be on the field shortly. Anyone interested in making a donation or learning more about this project can contact Alabama Lions Sight at 700 South 18th Street Birmingham, AL 35233, toll free 1-800-96-sight, or email@example.com.
