Customer Reviews


This is a great resource for parents and teachers! As a Teacher of the Visually Impaired, my students frequently visit eye doctors. I would love for this book to be accessible with VoiceOver and/or have the option of read aloud. When the text is imbedded into a picture, screen readers like VoiceOver cannot read the text. Thank you!

Cute and effective

What a great way to reduce our son's fears about seeing a doctor! We loved how interactive it was. Howard and Dr Iris were cute characters.

Informative and Relatable

A darling and informative story for young kids in preparation for an eye exam…will definitely make the whole experience not so scary. Wish I had had this book before my three kids went for the first time. Great idea Alcon!!!
