Keeping Kids Healthy: Safeguarding Your Child's Vision
Your Child's Vision: Gisele's parents did everything they were supposed to do: childhood eye exams, periodic vision checks, everything the doctor ordered. But for years no one knew that she was virtually blind in one eye, and by the time the loss was discovered, it was perilously close to being too late to correct it. Their story will show you the importance of trusting your own instincts, going for that second and third opinion, and not giving up! Join host Dr. Winnie King, along with an innovative pediatric ophthalmologist and two children with vision stories to tell. Most important, learn what you have to watch out for to make sure you protect your own child's gift of sight.
