LATEST PROJECT CHILDREN EYE SCREENING PROJECT
One of Lirot’s achievements is our medical project of eye screening for needy
children in order to prevent blindness due to “lazy eye” or amblyopia, If not treated
before the age of 8, the child can become blind in one eye.
Up to 5 % of the juvenile population suffers from “lazy eye”, or approximately 8000
children every year contract the disease.
This is an innovative and unique project in Israel that will screen the children’s eyes
of disadvantaged children in community centers throughout the country.
