Question by fuman85: How can I make an eye care/vision booth at a health fair for college students interesting? Any creative ideas?
I am in charge of creating a vision and eye care booth at a health fair intended for college students living in residence halls. I am looking for any creative ideas to make it stand out and seem interesting. Any ideas of items to maybe give out in hand-out bags?

ContaCt a local optometry office and see if they will man it for you. They might also be able to bring some free eye drops and contact lens solution samples. You might also see if they would bring their eye puff machine and do glaucoma screenings. That would be kewl and they might get some exam referrals this way as well.

Get some posters with color combinations that seem to make the picture move even though it is not.

Get some optical illusions.

If you can get them, there are glasses that have a solid surface with tiny holes (the size of a pin) in lines across. No matter how bad your site, you will be able to read with these.

Alternate…get a piece of dark paper. Put a small hole in the center. Ask people who wear glasses to take them off and see if they can read the eye chart.

They will be amazed that they can through the small hole.

Give a hand out on the dietary things that help eye health.

One of the big ones that you will find on PubMed but is seldom mentioned in popular culture is boosting your glutathione.

My mother in law has been able to stay off the eye medicine by doing this.

You will have to do some searches to get it to fit your model.

Best wishes.
