Wyoming Vision Collaborative

History

The Wyoming Vision Collaborative hosted its first outreach event in October 2014 after developing from the Wyoming Lions Early Childhood Vision Project that began in 2000. Housed in the Wyoming Institute for Disabilities (WIND) since its inception, the initial founding partners included the Wyoming Department of Health (Maternal and Child Health), the Wyoming Department of Education, Child Development Services of Wyoming, and the Lions Clubs of Wyoming. While the goal of increasing the rate of children screened and receiving appropriate follow-up care remains, the Wyoming Vision Collaborative has grown to encompass more statewide stakeholders and seeks to re-evaluate our systematic approach based on newly published evidence based practices.

About the Wyoming Vision Collaborative

Funding

We are currently funded by the Wyoming Department of Health (Maternal and Child Health) and are fortunate to also have the support of various generous donors, including the Lions of Wyoming Foundation and Miracles in Sight. Wyoming Vision Collaborative (WVC) stakeholders who inform and contribute to WVC's work, include local optometrists, local Lions clubs, the National Center for Children’s Vision and Eye Health, WVC's pediatric advisory committee, and Wyoming Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI). With this collaboration, WVC seeks to improve training for screeners, increase the rate of children screened, create a more cohesive and consistent statewide program, increase public awareness about recommended regular eye exams, and improve follow-up care.
