Primary Eye Health Activity: BLINDFOLD TOUCH

Did you know that visually impaired kids who cannot properly see light, shades or shadows often use their sense of touch to inspire other youngsters to paint striking pictures? Find out more by signing your students up for our brand-new “Blindfold Touch” challenge.

The fear and anxiety of losing sight can encourage students’ empathy

“Blindfold Touch” challenge can be hold in the school or online. Students can learn how to write their names in Braille. Also, they can wear blindfolds and “feel” the lines and shapes under teachers’ voice navigation, then make up imaginative paintings on incredibly tactile canvases.

To enhance everyone’s team spirit, sense of compassion and eye care awareness, students can write down their feelings about their work. In addition, we will also be delighted to deliver a free school talk full of handy eye care tips.

All students participating in our latest “Blindfold Touch” challenge will receive an informative eyecare leaflet, eye chart and tactile canvases. There’ll also be a themed eye mask for those donating HK$40 or over.
