  • Did my child inherit my poor vision?
  • Is playing video games bad for my child's eyesight?
  • Will wearing glasses make my child's eyes worse?
  • What can I do to help my child?

Now imagine this... you're an eye doctor!

ImageWith wit, warmth and compassion, Dr. Nicholas Despotidis, answers the perplexing questions every parent struggles with when their child's vision worsens.  If you are concerned about your child's vision and want to know how to help, this is the perfect book for you!

Join optometrist Nicholas Despotidis as he takes you on the path of discovery that will allow you to make the best choice for your child's vision.

"Dr. Despotidis, along with Drs. Lee and Tannen have authored an easy-to-understand guide on the modern methods of managing myopia including an exciting proram, entitled gorneal reshaping, that allows qualified young people to only wear a vision correction while sleeping at night. A  must read for every parent!"
