Fowler, accompanied by his son Jacob, and Bishop took penalties while blindfolded during the interval to support the charity.
Liverpool had replaced their usual 'Standard Chartered' sponsors with the slogan 'Seeing is Believing' to raise money for the charity which seeks to eradicate avoidable blindness in developing countries.
The jerseys the players wore during a smash-and-grab defeat by West Brom will be auctioned to aid the cause.
