Juniors screen preschoolers' eyes

Members of the La Cañada Junior Women’s Club recently visited several preschools in La Cañada, including Parents & Children Nursery School, St. George’s Preschool, the Lighted Window Preschool and the La Cañada Flintridge Community Center Preschool to screen the students eyes for vision problems, including amblyopia.

“Amblyopia affects 1 to 3% of the general population,” stated Samantha Sandman, one of the chairs of the program. “Early detection is key to a favorable outcome.”

Under the direction of club members Sandman and Amanda Georgino, members met with approximately 200 children to screen their eyes.
