We Serve

Lions are part of a distinguished service history, dedicated to serving the blind and the vision impaired.  At a 1925 convention Helen Keller challenged the Lions to become her “Knights for the Blind”, as crusaders against blindness.  By conducting vision screenings to detect eye problems and providing glasses, Lions can change the future for many people. 

Lions Clubs also help bring communities together.  We work closely with the city, police, schools, the Chamber of Commerce, churches and nursing homes to plan together how Lions can help the residents in our area.

Volunteers are always welcome to serve on projects or committees.  Please contact us by completing the form on the “Contact Us” page, or contact any member.  

Thank you.

Vision Screening

We conduct free vision screenings for adults and children in a variety of places and community gatherings. We provide free vision screenings to children in the Savannah area through our KidsightUSA program, using the Welch Alyn Spot Vision Screener. This is a handheld, portable device designed to help easily detect vision issues on children as young as 6 months old, as well as adults. Both eyes are screened at once from a 3 foot distance and the results are immediately displayed on the computer screen. This computer display allows for early detection of near & far sightedness, unequal refractive power, blurred vision, pupil size deviation and eye misalignment. People are referred an eye doctor for further care as needed.  

Would you like to help the Pooler Lions with some vision screenings at area schools? Email us at lionsclub2@gmail.com and we will contact you about how you can help us with this community service for our students.
