Interactive kiosks teach parents and children the importance of keeping your eyes healthy
Have you ever wondered how your favorite animal sees their world? Find out how a hawk, catfish, and a honey bee does it at the Louisiana Children’s Museum.
Give a mock eye exam in the pint size ophthalmologist’s office and don’t forget to visit “Dr. Peeper’s” optical shop for the latest in kiddie eye wear. Design your own spectacles made of pipe cleaners and construction paper, of course.
Learn how a blind person tells time, reads and does just about anything a sighted person can do.
Visitors can “see” others entering the exhibit and distort them using different lenses that mimic ocular impairments such as Myopia, Hyperopia, astigmatism, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration.
