A pair of identical boy twins, Zed and Zee, are poles apart in their lifestyle habits. One is myopic, one is not. One evening after a particularly rowdy argument, Mummy whips out a mysterious blue orb that takes them on a whirlwind tour with Prof Plano. Prof Plano is on a mission to defeat the evil Lord Myopia and stop him from collecting bottles of Perfect Vision from children who wear glasses. Prof Plano needs the twins’ help! The adventure will roughly parallel the tenets of good eye habits needed to prevent the early onset of myopia, as researched by the scientists at the Singapore National Eye Centre (SNEC). The developers of the Plano (which means “perfect vision”) app, closely tied with the SNEC, have an interest in this book/series. Each book ends with a two-page fact sheet with specially curated information for children on facts of myopia and prevention of its onset and deterioration.
