Iowa KidSight is a joint project of the Lions Clubs of Iowa and the Department of Ophthalmology & Visual Sciences at the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital, dedicated to enhancing the early detection and treatment of vision impairments in young children (target population 6 months of age through kindergarten) in Iowa communities through screening and public education.

Goals of Iowa KidSight:

  • Objectively screen vision in infants and young children throughout all of Iowa's 99 counties–for FREE.
  • Educate the public about the risk of undetected vision loss.
  • Identify ways to sustain vision screening programs of this type.
