Dr. Nicholas Despotidis will be one of twenty speakers and entertainers to hit the stage at TEDxAsburyPark 2018 – Passion on Saturday, May 19th at the Paramount Theatre on the Asbury Park Boardwalk. Enjoy an unforgettable and inspiring day as he presents his talk “A Childhood Disease Worth Preventing”
Dr. Despotidis and his wife Teresa have two sons, Nicholas and Gregory. It was his children’s need for eyeglasses at very young ages that sparked his passion to investigate and address the growing number of children requiring eyeglasses. He is a pioneer in the use of contact lenses, which are used to slow down or prevent deterioration in the eyesight of children and young adults. He’s the lead author of the book, “My Children Are Nearsighted Too” (http://www.mychildrenarenearsightedtoo.com/), and the newly released book, “A Parent’s Guide to Raising Children with Healthy Vision.” Dr. Despotidis practices optometry at Eyecare Professionals PC in Hamilton New Jersey.
