West Covina Lions who assisted with these screening are Dr. Thear Bun, Jake Chik, Mario Del Fante, Anna Lee Farber, Donald Luey, Lisa Mayo, Paul O’Brien, and Vision Screening Chair Vicki Scheliga. Pictured from left are a volunteer mother, School Board member Mike Flowers, Lion Vicki Scheliga, and WCUSD Nurse Cynthia Hernandez.

NOTE:  The West Covina School District nurse can refer any child whose parents cannot afford their child’s eye care to Lions. We will cover the cost of their eye care. The child must either live or go to school in West Covina.
