A traveling museum exhibit spotlighting eye care will make a stop at the Maryland Science Center at the Inner Harbor from Friday through Sunday.
The interactive "Eye Didn't Know That!" exhibit features explanations of how the eye works; a look through cataract goggles that replicate symptoms of the eye disease, and a description of eye-care advances, such as photochromic technology that protects the eye from UV light with changing shades of lenses in eye glasses.
The exhibit, sponsored by photochromics supplier Transitions Optical Inc., is designed for visitors of all ages but especially hopes to impress on children the importance of taking care of their eyes throughout life's stages.
The science center is at 601 Light St. and the exhibit is available during the center's operating hours, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
The exhibit is free with a paid basic admission, which is $14 for adults, $9.50 for children ages 3-12, and $13 for seniors age 60 and older. The exhibit is visiting 13 cities.
