These work as designed. They force him to learn to dribble without looking at the ball. He can still look down and see the ball if he absolutely has to, but he has to turn his head much further down to see it, making it a conscious decision rather than an unconscious habit. They are not the most comfortable to wear, but not so uncomfortable that he completely refuses. I would recommend them for anyone who really WANTS to work on their ball handling skills.
