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.
Co-branded with National Eye Institute/National Eye Health Education Program (NEI/NEHEP), LEHP materials are perfect for your community eye health education, health fairs and speaking events.
Making Vision a Health Priority - Share the importance of vision health in your community.
Age-Related Eye Diseases and Conditions - Many people are not aware that age-related eye diseases are treatable -- or even preventable. Inform them to help prevent vision loss.
Low Vision - Present information about low vision, what can be done about it, and where to get more information.
Children's Eye Health & Safety Activity Sheets - Incorporate eye health worksheets into your youth-related projects such as vision screenings, awareness and literacy.
For Lions clubs in the USA, the National Eye Institute has a limited supply of free materials on eye health and eye diseases. Access their online catalog. Orders may be placed by e-mail to Rosie Janiszewski, or by phone at 301-496-5248. You must identify yourself as a Lion in order to access materials for free.
