Abstract

Education has the potential to reduce the high rates of preventable blindness in Armenia. The Armenian Eyecare Project sought to expand childhood eyecare education through a digital supplement to their children’s book Desunik’s Game of Sight. Our team researched best practices for digital educational activities, designed mock-up videos and games, and tested the mock-ups in Armenian schools. Evaluation of activities for both educational value and enjoyability refined our recommendations on visual design, suggested activities, and transferable knowledge. We recommended developers and provided a prospectus fundraising package to produce the application. Our work will help educate and empower children to better care for their eyes, reducing preventable blindness in the future.
