Free eye glasses
Morethan 80% of children’s learning is visual. 25% of children under six years of age have vision problems but only 15% of children of that age group get an annual eye exam. Parents who can’t afford to buy glasses for their children aged twelve and under can now approach the Magog Lions Club for complete financial assistance. For information about this generous program, call either Robert Chagnon at 819 843-5176 or Gerald Ruest at 819 8474945. Eye examinations for people 18 and under and 65 and older are always free. For adults, there is a free Clinique Mobile for eye exams, this October 13th, 2012, organized by the local Lions Club. Its location will be announced at a later date. Members of the Coaticook Lions Club were happy to receive a tester for used glasses from the Magog Lions Club earlier this month.
