The committee issued a total of 35 authorizations for either eye exams and glasses or hearing exams and aids.

Authorizations were issued for 17 children to receive eye exams and glasses in coordination school district 200 nurses. The parents of two of these children never made appointments for the eye exams and glasses. The new Spanish version of the clubs Referral Form has been very helpful for some of the school children's parents to complete.

Authorizations were issued for 18 adults (11 for eye exams and glasses/contacts, 7 for hearing aids) in conjunction with PADS caseworkers and referrals from other sources such as Lions Club members, past clients and our website. Four of the PADS clients never made appointments for the eye exams and one of the PADS clients referrals was rejected by the committee. One of the referrals requested assistance for a serious eye condition that required special treatment. This request was approved by the committee and the Wheaton Lions Club Board of Directors.
Five authorizations were issued for hearing exams and aids and 2 authorizations were issued for hearing aid repair.
