Squirming and screaming children at the eye doctor who are too afraid of the scary machines to sit still? Send them to outer space! Students in UAB’s Science and Technology Honors Program have designed AstroOptics, an  interactive space simulation to obtain quality ocular images while reducing children’s fear and distraction.
