KidSight Program

E-mail Print PDF

For the past four years the Coventry Lions Club held eye screening exams for the daycare and pre-schools in our communities. Our club uses a Spot PediaVision Camera, a top of the line Vision Screening Camera specifically designed for screening children. The Spot Vision Screener is a handheld, portable device designed to help users quickly and easily detect vision issues on participants from 6 months of age and up. Spot screens both eyes at once from a nonthreatening 3-foot distance. Spot is powered by sophisticated technology that quickly detects the indication of the following vision issues:

  • Near-sightedness (myopia)
  • Far-sightedness (hyperopia)
  • Unequal refractive power (anisometropia)
  • Blurred vision, eye structure problem (astigmatism)
  • Pupil size deviations (anisocoria)
  • Eye misalignment (strabismus)

In just seconds, Spot provides a comprehensive, reliable analysis that enables informed decision making about the need for a follow-up diagnosis.

We were pleased to screen the children in your schools. Last year our club screened over 500 children in our communities. There were several children identified with vision concerns and this information was shared with their parents. Early detection and proper eye care can help prevent and/or correct problems that may cause children difficulty in their school years.

In our screening, along with the expected findings of common eye and vision concerns, our club identified a few youngsters with the beginning signs of amblyopia or lazy eye. Eye Care professionals are of one mind when it comes to early detection of amblyopia; the earlier the beginning stages of amblyopia are identified, the sooner steps can be taken to stop its' progression. By the time a child reaches school age (6) the affliction becomes more difficult to treat and more likely to become a permanent problem. I tell you this to emphasize the importance of early vision screening and the equally important annual follow-ups

Dr. Ambrose Peterman Awarded for 50+ Years of Service

E-mail Print PDF

Dr. Ambrose Peterman is Honored for over fifty years of helping the Coventry Lions Club by offering free eye exams and prescription glasses at cost.

Pictured L to R - Lion Terry Stouffer, Dr, Ambrose Peterman and Lion Ken Swart

Dr. Peterman has been working with the Coventry Lions Club for well over fifty years. In addition, he worked with the Stowe Lions Club in Pottstown. Ambrose (Pete) announced his retirement as an optometrist at the end of September this year.

When schools would contact the Lions Club regarding a child in need of vision care a simple phone call to Ambrose Peterman,O.D. and the child was given an appointment to be shortly followed by an exam and glasses. The only charge to the club was the cost of the materials as the doctor's son, Todd Peterman worked next door as an optician and would prepare the glasses for the child.

The doctor's good will expanded beyond the school's children from disadvantaged families to area senior centers, community centers and basically any entity that worked to help those in need. If someone came to the Lions Club for help with vision problems they were sent to Dr. Peterman to get the help they needed.

Although the club has lost a valuable community resource with the retirement of Dr. Peterman we wish him a long and happy retirement.
