Girl Scouts Earn Vision Awareness Badges

Last night we had the pleasure of having six of our lovely local Girl Scouts come and earn their Vision Awareness Badges! We had so much fun!! We learned a little about the anatomy of the eye, took turns taking Optomap pictures of each girl and learned all about the macula and optic nerve. The girls took turns looking through the doctors slit lamp to see what the doctor sees during an exam. They also learned what it’s like to try to walk and even eat for people with low or no vision, and they even had a special visit from a local seeing eye puppy and her raiser!! What fun!!
