    Stel Nikolakakis, trained as an optometrist, discovered a new dimension of vision through a personal journey. When his child, diagnosed with cerebral palsy, was recommended vision therapy, Stel's understanding of vision expanded. Initially skeptical, he pursued further education in the United States at a colleague’s suggestion. This experience revealed to him that vision is not merely about eyesight but the intricate connection between the eyes and the brain. Driven by a desire to support his child's development, Stel embraced this broader concept of vision, which redefined his professional and personal approach to visual health.
