One-third of all eye injuries in the U.S. happen to children but a full 90% are PREVENTABLE! One Pair of Eyes© was developed to positively affect Ohio students’ attitudes towards the use of personal eye protection, and their ability to identify appropriate eye health and safety practices. Safety is NO accident: knowing what to do (and not do) can make all the difference!
This program is intended for teens – for younger (K-6) students go to www.wiseabouteyes.org for great resources on eye health and safety!
One Pair of Eyes® is funded by the Ohio Department of Health Bureau of Child and Family Health Services’ Save Our Sight Program, and is supported by Prevent Blindness Ohio and Nationwide Children’s Hospital.
Lesson plans include a variety of teaching techniques and feature activities to drive home relevant eye safety messages to Ohio’s teens. Overview and review videos are included, as well as Substitute Teacher Plans. One Pair of Eyes® extension activities are perfect “blizzard bag” assignments – everything is on-line!
