In late 2019 it was announced that the Vision Awareness Badge, which has been popular among Girl Scouts, is now available to Boy Scouts as well.
To promote its widened availability, the New Jersey Society of Optometric Physicians and the New York State Optometric Association partnered with Liberty Science Center at their Boy Scout Event.
Drs. Maria and Harvey Richman, Dr. Kathleen Kinzley, Dr. Yujie Chang, Dr. Saysha Blazier, Dr. Tamara Petrosyan, Dr. Talia Mishkin, and Dr. Nimrah Malik met with Boy Scouts to discuss eye and vision health, the importance of an annual, comprehensive eye exam with an optometrist, and how to earn the Vision Awareness Badge.
