HOW TO SCHEDULE VISION SCREENING WITH LOEB

We, the 2-E2, Lions Organ and Eye Bank (LOEB) Board of Directors, are encouraged by all the clubs that are participating in vision screening events throughout the district.  With all the increase in screenings we have also had an increase in demand for equipment and assistance.  We are asking everyone to meet a few conditions when asking to schedule an event.  The Board has the final approval regarding any event on the schedule.

Plan your event well in advance, otherwise we may not be able to help. Small events need to be scheduled at least 30 days in advance.  Larger events need to be scheduled at least 60 days in advance. Your club is ultimately responsible for the success of your event, so plan accordingly.

Your club will be the sponsor of the event and will need to supply the certified screeners and volunteers needed for the event. If your screeners have never done an event or they have not done one in over a year, you may request assistance from the Board.

Be specific in your request for equipment and scheduling. You will need to include date, time, place and the equipment needed.  If you are requesting the Mobile Vision Unit, specify who the optometrist(s) is that will be at your event.  You will need to have a Lion in your club designated as the “lead” for the event. Their name and contact information needs to be included in your request. 

The vision screeners are housed in the ERC in Watauga and the MVU is stored in Bartonville.  We will make every effort to make the equipment available to the clubs, but ultimately, it is the club’s responsibility to pick-up and return the equipment.

Before your event make sure that you have the proper consent forms.  These need to be Lions approved forms, other consent forms are not acceptable.  These forms are available on our website at loeb2e2.org. If screening children or anyone under 18 years old, there must be parental/guardian consent in advance, or the parent/guardian must be present at the screening

Be sure to follow-up with the parents or guardians of children who have been referred for further evaluation. Encourage them to have their children examined by an eye care professional.

After the event, report the results of your screening event to the Board.  This information needs to include the number of children or adults screened, the number that were referred for exams, the number of Lions participating in the event, and the number of Lion Service hours. These statistics are important to our District.

The Board member responsible for the scheduling 2018-2019 is Emily Rohne.  Her contact information is erohne@verizon.net or 972-317-5560.
