But with some new technology, it only took a few seconds.

The Lions Club recently received a $7,000 eye screener from the Lion's Club District 27-C2.

The screener replaces the old way of having young kids read an eye chart, which is handy when some of the kids may be too shy or can't read the alphabet yet.

School District Nurse Kerri Schmidt says the technology doesn't work on adults but works well for the younger students.
