Who We Are

Our Signature Project

During the Fall Semester of 2016 volunteer Lions visited 36 Comal County Campuses and screened the vision of over 6000 children. Of those screened, over 300 were screened using the new "Spot Scope" a revolution in vision testing. Over 350 were found to have possible vision problems and were referred to the school nurse for possible further referral to a physician. To accomplish this project a total of 465 Lion-days were required. Our 2017 project kicks off with our first campus visit on Tuesday, August 29, 2017.

Other Community Projects

Vision Services: Provide advice to persons needing eye examinations and glasses. In cases of inability to obtain help from government resources we provide for examinations and glasses for qualified individuals.

Eyeglass recycling: Our club turns collects over 5000 pair of used eyeglasses to be turned in to the Texas Eyeglass Recycling Center yearly.

Scholarships to outstanding seniors who show high academic ability as well as outstanding volunteer activity during their high school years.


Leo Clubs: Our club sponsors three Leo Clubs in local middle and high schools. The Leo Clubs introduce the youngsters, ages 12 and up to the world of service. These programs have been very successful and provide our members with great opportunities to work with youngsters.
