VOLUNTEER OPENING EYES CLINICAL DIRECTOR Idaho

October 1, 2020 Thru December 31, 2020
 

Healthy Athlete Clinical Director

 

The Special Olympics Lions Clubs International Opening Eyes program is changing lives in communities across the globe by providing comprehensive eye assessments, prescription eyewear, sunglasses and sports goggles to Special Olympics athletes and people with intellectual disabilities in general. After going through 12 testing stations, the exam information is reviewed and a decision is made if the athlete needs a new pair of prescription glasses or sport goggles. Through the generosity of our corporate sponsors Essilor (lenses) and Safilo (frames), athletes choose from a selection of eye wear. Athletes who do not need any corrective lenses receive plano sunglasses also provided by Safilo.

Special Olympics Idaho is looking for a volunteer Opening Eyes Clinical Director to host 1-2 screening events per year. Training provided by Special Olympics International. For more information, please visit https://resources.specialolympics.org/health/opening-eyes or email allison@idso.org.
