Colorado Lions KidSight Program
The Colorado Lions KidSight Program works with young children throughout Colorado to make sure they can see clearly! This is one year old Tivoli and her mother Beth who are from Castle Rock, Colorado. In the above picture Tivoli is wearing her glasses for the very first time! Tivoli was born with a severe eye condition where the blood vessels are too tight in the eye. This condition caused two detached retinas which required surgery. Tivoli needs glasses and even with the glasses will continue to have vision issues. She attends the Anchor Center for the Blind one day a week to participate in their programs. KidSight was able to provide these glasses at no cost for Tivoli. We would especially like to thank Dr. Lawrence Jacobs, an optometrist and a Lion from the Highlands Ranch Lions Club who helped to fit Tivoli with her glasses.
In 2021 the Colorado Lions KidSight Program celebrated twenty years of helping Colorado’s young children through vision screening and follow-up. We also provide resources for those in need through eye exams and glasses. Your donation this year helps us to continue to provide these services across the state. Due to the coronavirus, many children have not received a vision screening in two years and we are seeing higher rates of referral for vision problems. The current rate of referral for Colorado is more than 14 percent. Your contribution to our program
