Eyeglass prescriptions for very young children have become commonplace, not to mention expensive. The fact is, even though prescribed by an eyecare professional, glasses may not be necessary. On the other hand, if a child has a vision problem that requires corrective lenses, it's extremely important that the child receive appropriate glasses in a timely manner. Otherwise, the child's education and even future vision could be impacted. How's a parent to know what to do? Noted pediatric ophthalmologist Dr. Robert Clark has written this guide for parents that covers not only glasses, but the whole gamut of common eyecare problems in children.

Dr. Clark describes each problem in clear, easy-to-understand language, then details treatment options and empowers parents to communicate with children's eyecare specialists. This important book will give parents the fundamental information they need to take care of their children's eyes.
