Eighty percent of learning comes by way of vision during the first twelve years of life. Growth, development, and academic success are directly linked to good vision. This twelve-minute animated/live action video explains the inner workings of the visual system and why it is essential to provide good protection for the eyes in conjunction with regular eye exams.
Sophie, Becky, and Michael are playing their favorite video game when Michael becomes frustrated; he can't understand why he keeps losing. His friends notice him squinting at times, and they wonder if he might need glasses. Who can help? To the rescue come Wise Eyes and Spex; and together they embark on a fascinating journey of the eye. On their return, having obtained a better understanding of the complexities of sight, they head off to visit optometrist Dr. Seebetter, who succeeds in helping Michael see what he's been missing.
The American Optometric Association is excited to introduce children to Wise Eyes and Spex. This video designed for kindergarten through third grade provides parents and teachers with a fun and educational way to teach about the magic of sight.
