Private ‘Eyes’ at J.C. Sommer

The fourth grade students at J.C. Sommer Elementary School became private investigators and helped solve an apparent crime during an educational presentation regarding eye health on March 1. Optometrist Dr. Michelle Buckland, who has been volunteering with Realeyes since the mid-2000s, gave them a case about a stolen crown and helped them through the clues using facts about how the eyes work, optical illusions and keeping those peepers safe from harm, such as never looking directly at the sun. Here are a few “sights” captured during the program, which was created by the Ohio Optometric Association with grant funding from the Ohio Department of Health’s Save Our Sight Fund.
