Schedule a vision screening for your community.


At least 15 percent of all preschoolers have an undetected vision problem that needs to be treated with glasses, which is why Oregon’s legislature has mandated a new law that requires all children entering kindergarten to show proof of a vision screening.

See to Read is a part of this state wide initiative, aiming for earliest detection. Trained screeners from the Oregon Elks and Oregon Lions will be administering these free vision screenings at public libraries to children ages 3-7 years old. See to Read is a campaign driven by the belief that no child should begin learning to read and write with an undetected vision problem.
