The KanLovKids Project offers Pediatric Low Vision Collaboration Clinics (PLVCC) and low vision evaluations (LVE) to children from ages birth through 21 who reside in Kansas.  All services are supplementary to the child/student's primary eye care provided by their local ophthalmologist and/or optometrist.
 
KanLovKids prescribes optical devices and the child/student's teacher of students who are visually impaired and/or certified orientation and mobility specialist provide the training after the devices are purchased.  Kansas has a state contract so that school districts can purchase said devices at a considerable discount.
 
There are 8 low vision doctors, located in 11 locations throughout the state, that provide low vision evaluations. The Pediatric Low Vision Collaboration Clinics are with Linda Lawrence, MD, from Salina or  N. Marie Koederitz MD, from Topeka. Both are  ophthalmologists who work with infants, toddlers, and school-aged children diagnosed with Cortical Visual Impairment or children who are visually impaired with additional disabilities.

The Lion's Club International Foundation produced a short video that describes the low vision process, the goals of the evaluation, and how it helps improve the lives of children who are visually impaired though-out  the state of Kansas.
