Press Release – updated: Feb 20, 2018
ALLENTOWN, Pa., February 20, 2018 (Newswire.com) –
Lehigh Valley Center For Sight has announced that they have been providing eye exams for students from the Wilson Area Schools. In cooperation with the school district’s nursing staff and School Superintendent, Lehigh Valley Center For Sight Optometrists Drs. Paciotti and Tilghman have been performing eye exams for those children who have failed their annual vision screening and who have not yet had their eye examination completed. These children will also be fitted for glasses at the time of their exam, assuring that their eye exam needs are completed.
The school district has been busing for the students to the Lehigh Valley Center For Sight’s newest office, located at 3959 William Penn Highway, Easton, Pennsylvania. The eye exams for these children started on December 6, 2017, with multiple days scheduled through December and continuing well into January 2018.
There are over 70 students district-wide that have failed their initial vision screening. School district policy is that students who have failed their vision screening must have a vision exam by a professional eye care specialist. Many of the district’s students who have failed their screening have not had their vision exam. Lehigh Valley Center For Sight stepped in to provide this community service. “We want to make sure that students, regardless of their family income and insurance situation, can get the eye care they need. Poor eyesight can be an indicator of an undiagnosed, underlying medical issue. In addition, poor vision can contribute to poor grades and unmotivated students. Our goal is to make sure every student in need has access to eye care. Lehigh Valley Center For Sight is proud to offer our new community this service,” stated Dr. Tilghman.
