Lansing, MI (March 1, 2016) – On March 26, 2016 the Michigan Optometric Association (MOA) Children’s Vision Care and InfantSEE® Committee will host Children’s Vision Day across the state of Michigan. The Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum, Flint Children’s Museum, Grand Rapids Children’s Museum and the Great Lakes Children’s Museum in Traverse City have partnered with the MOA for this event.

Children and their parents will learn about eye safety, ocular anatomy, what to expect at an eye exam, and how to locate a doctor in their area. Children will explore five stations that will be set-up in the museum. Stations will be hands on and educational to make learning fun and promote the importance of eye care and eye safety. Stations will be operated by volunteer MOA Optometrists.
