Dr. Jay Walshon obtained his medical degree from the SUNY Upstate Medical Center in 1975, and as a hospital Chairman & Director of Emergency Services practiced emergency medicine for over 30 years.  A graduate of the New York Institute of Photography, his love of the arts, photography, nature and children culminated in the Eye See You series of books.

Mrs. Caroline Walshon was a finalist in the 1985 Miss Connecticut pageant.  She studied business administration at WBI and has successfully owned and managed several restaurants for over 20 years. Caroline is currently a practicing Usui Reiki Master, certified in Jikiden Reiki, and works helping hospice patients.   Eye See You has given her the opportunity to share her flair for design and accessorizing with children around the world.

The Eye See You series of books was designed to directly connect the world’s children with the animals that share our planet, and instill an appreciation of nature, photography, and travel at an early age.  Believing that collectively, including our children, we can have a positive impact upon the world’s innocents, Dr. Jay recognized this as a philanthropic opportunity with global appeal.

Dr. Jay and Caroline reside in Connecticut.

    Hi Dr. Jay,
    It was great meeting and talking to you March 20th at the Palm Beach Zoo’s Tiger Encounter. I look forward to your book on the same. You mentioned that this was your third book, and I only saw one on this site. Did I misunderstand you?
    The books look really great and I hope you will let me know when your new book is completed. My grandchildren will really enjoy it.
    Your zoo friend,
