Realeyes Starts Off Strong in 2014

Realeyes Westside Academy Jan 2014Realeyes staff and volunteer eye doctors have presented to more than 4,300 students in 38 Ohio schools so far in 2014.

In January, during presentations to pre-kindergarten, first, third and sixth grade classes at Edon Northwest Elementary School (Williams County), a third-grade student claimed the presentation was “better than recess!”

A week later, at multiple presentations at Westside Academy, Columbus (Franklin County), kindergarten students sang the tunes of “Sammy Safe-Eyes,” first-grade students participated in the penlight activity portion of “The Adventures of Rhet & Tina,” and third-grade students helped solve “The Case of Vinny Vision.”

Realeyes teaches students about the importance of vision health and eye safety and is presented at no charge by doctors in the community to pre-school through eighth-grade classes. Realeyes is funded by a grant from the Ohio Department of Health’s Save Our Sight Fund. Contact the Ohio Optometric Association for additional information at 800-874-9111; email:
