While it is true that some vision loss cannot be prevented, it is equally important to know that many eye diseases can be effectively managed through a healthy lifestyle and early detection. As part of our commitment to promoting eye health, we are collaborating with Singapore Polytechnic to offer free eye checks at the event from 11.00am to 6.00pm. 

A participant is wearing simulated tunnel vision goggles and is picking up beans with a chopstick.
