See to Read: Free Vision Screenings at Cedar Mill Library

Did you know that at least 15 percent of all preschoolers have an undetected vision problem that needs to be treated with glasses?  In 2013, the Oregon Legislature mandated a new law requiring all children entering kindergarten must show proof of a vision screening. 

See to Read is part of this statewide initiative, aiming for earliest detection through a partnership with The Elks Children’s Eye Clinic at OHSU’s Casey Eye Institute, the Oregon State Elks, the Oregon Library Association and the Oregon Lions.  Trained screeners from the Oregon Elks and Oregon Lions administer free vision screenings at public libraries throughout the state of Oregon to children ages 3-7 years old.
