What is it like to see the world through someone else’s eyes?

If you’ve ever been curious about how your eyes work, why some people need glasses, or what the difference is between being nearsighted and far-sighted, How Do You See the World? has the answers!

Eyes are complicated, and each little part has to work together in order to build a clear picture of what you see. Engaging science content covers eye anatomy, how light enters our eyes and sends an image to our brain, how we see color, and even ways we can perceive invisible light.

Two pages of the book How Do You See the World. They are showing the 4 steps that happens once light enters your eye through your pupil.

Written by an optical physicist, this informative picture book explores the various eye conditions that kids may have or may learn about through their friends and relatives. Discover clear explanations of eye conditions such as amblyopia, astigmatism, color blindness, and glaucoma, paired with illustrations that show how these conditions affect what you see and what tools you can use to improve your vision.

How Do You See the World? helps kids ages 7–10 understand their own eyes and empathize with how others experience the world around them. Fun, diverse characters will help normalize all types of visual impairments and celebrate the tools and technology that help us navigate more clearly.
