Our Kids are going BLIND!
I just spent the day with my Lions Club doing vision screening in our local Elementary and Middle School. We screened 137 First or Third Graders, 53 of them passed with 20/20 vision, the rest of them had vision worse than 20/20 (which in Indiana means they are referred to an eye doctor).
The 8th graders there were 328 students and only 79 passed with 20/20, another 38 marginally passed with 20/30. The rest were worse than 20/30, and several of the kids were 20/200 or worse.
