Clinician, author and speaker, Dr. David L. Cook, OD, has recently released his third book, The Shape of the Sky – Eye Games and Seeing Stories for Discovering Depth in a Flat World. The book includes 3D glasses and 75 eye games and is a compilation of Cook’s vision expertise for doctors, therapists and anyone else who has a curiosity about how we see the world.

Nearly 40 percent of the U.S. population has myopia, or nearsightedness, and the number is growing. As people focus on the close world of books and screens for work, play, education and entertainment, many are losing visual engagement with the larger 3D world. Dr. Cook’s book takes the reader on a journey exploring visual limitations and includes games that push the limits of visual boundaries in order to “see big.”

A fellow at the American Academy of Optometry, Cook has focused his 40 years of work on fine-tuning vision therapy. His professional articles have appeared in top refereed journals, including the Journal of the American Optometric Association.

    “For those like myself, who teach patients to do vision and have seen dull eyes begin to sparkle and human performance expand, vision is something we do, and more importantly, something we can learn to do better.”

The Shape of the Sky – Eye Games and Seeing Stories for Discovering Depth in a Flat World is available at for $55. More information at or call 770-419-0400.
