“Let Howard the Hedgehog Tell Kids About an Eye Exam”

Nov. 23, 2016

Catherine McDaniel, OD, MS, FAAO, chief of pediatrics at the OSU College of Optometry Clinic, wrote the free, downloadable e-book Howard and the Amazing Eye Exam to teach parents and children about the importance of an eye exam and the steps involved in one. “Kids often fear their eye doctor is going to give them a shot,” she says, “but reading this before an exam lessens their anxiety and lets them know what to expect.”
