Drs. Christopher Chiodo and Christopher Coker performed their first school vision screening on Thursday, February 23 and Thursday, March 15 at Faith Lutheran Academy. Under the direction of Colette Fried, the doctors screened over 150 4th, 5th and 6th graders. The screening was a huge success and led to many students requiring examination leading to proper vision correction and better vision for the children. Vision screenings only typically uncover 10-20% of all vision problems. It’s a definite positive having them and helping these students achieve better grades based on better vision. “It was amazing to me how many of these children had undetected vision problems,” stated Dr. Chiodo. Vision screenings are just that - screenings - and full annual eye examinations are recommended for all. We look forward to performing these free screenings at Faith Lutheran Academy annually and to expand on this program to include many more schools. If you know of an elementary school that could benefit from this program, call Dr. Chiodo at (702) 254-6222 to inquire.
