Utah Valley Community College will host a free vision screening clinic for preschoolers Tuesday and Wednesday from 2 to 7 p.m. in the Student Center Concourse.
The clinic will help identify children between the ages of 31/2 and 51/2 who may have lazy eye blindness .At least one in every 35 preschool children in Utah will have an eye defect serious enough to require professional eye care. Amblyopia, or lazy eye blindness, is treatable and correctable if it is detected early.
The eye defect is not outgrown and must be treated within the first six or seven years of life or serious visual loss will occur.
