And we further raised the awareness by setting up a booth during our school carnival th on 5 August 2011 for our fellow schoolmates to put themselves in the shoes of a glaucoma patient. The booth has 3 different sections to it, namely: 1. Reading and writing out the words on a slip of paper 2. Going through a maze of messy tables and chairs 3. Finding 6 balls within the booth. * The games were carried out while wearing a blindfold with two cut-out holes. (Continued below)
