A new exhibit at the Little Buckeye Children's Museum is educating children and their caretakers on how to keep their eyes healthy and safe. A community premiere event was held Wednesday at the museum for the Wise about Eyes Exhibit. The featured speakers were Mayor Tim Theaker, Mansfield City Schools Superintendent Brian Garverick, representatives from the Ohio Department of Health and the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles and Prevent Blindness Ohio.  The exhibit provides an interactive and fun way for families to learn how to save their sight and protect their vision. According to Prevent Blindness Ohio vision problems affect 1 in 4 school-age children and 1 in 20 preschoolers. An estimated 47,300 Ohio preschool children have a vision disorder that can lead to loss of vision. The Wise About Eyes Exhibit will be on display until Jan.15, 2014. The exhibit was funded by the Ohio Department of Health, Bureau of Child and Family Health Services and the Save Our Sight Program. The Save Our Sight Program is supported by $1 donations at the time vehicle registration to support eye health and safety programs for kids.
