John William Yee, DEd, RO, is a Professor in the optical science faculty at Seneca College, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. He is a Registered Optician (from the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology, Alberta, Canada), and also holds a DEd (Doctor of Education in Psychology) from the University of Liverpool, UK. John Yee has written numerous journal papers on the relationship between neurology and optometry in the treatment of refractive errors. He opened a research facility with the help of some of his students to research the role of neurology in the treatment of nearsightedness (or myopia). He has also written a number of books on different problems: dealing with bullies, shedding excess weight, and understanding the stock market.
John William Yee has made a major personal effort to design preventive methods for this difficult problem, and these methods are effective. It is always difficult to pioneer an alternative treatment in a field as conservative as optometry, and it takes a bold `soul' to take these first steps. John has made a strong personal commitment to his research. . . . In this book, he offers this knowledge to professionals. . . . His pioneering development of Ortho C shows promise to effectively prevent nearsightedness at the threshold. His standard of professionalism and his commitment to support the welfare of others sets a high example for all of us. - From the Foreword by Otis S. Brown, Author of How to Avoid Nearsightedness, Waynesboro, PA, United States
