The Lions of Illinois Foundation Golf Classic benefits our Low Vision Program for Students. The Low Vision Program performs FREE comprehensive visual evaluations, helping severely visually impaired students make the most of their remaining sight. Students from kindergarten through twelfth grade gain a better understanding and awareness of their vision loss.

Low Vision optometrists travel to the screening locations, bringing equipment for examinations & demonstrations. The program furthers a visually impaired youth’s ability to increase their academic potential, enrich their social skills, and helps with future employment opportunities. Above all, the Low Vision Program helps address their daily challenges growing up with vision loss.
