Lions Eye Health Program

Lions Eye Health Program

The Lions Eye Health Program (LEHP) is a community-based education program empowering Lions to promote healthy vision and raise awareness of the causes of preventable vision loss.

LEHP Objectives

  • Encourage the early detection and timely treatment of diabetic eye disease, glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and the appropriate treatment for low vision.
  • Help educate people at risk for eye disease and encourage them to seek appropriate treatment.
  • Establish community activities that promote awareness of eye health.
  • Increase awareness of the network of local eye health organizations. Collaboration with these organizations may provide useful resources for Lions interested in promoting awareness of eye health and the causes of preventable vision loss.
