What People Say About vision therapy

  • Before vision therapy I was having problems with reading and comprehension. I also flipped my b and d. I would skip words and have to reread a lot. And the reason I did not like to read was because I got frustrated a lot. I would recommend it because now I can read without skipping over lines and it is not frustrated.
    — Allyssa (Age 10)
  • Prior to therapy, I would attend school everyday feeling significant pain due to headaches. I was taking ibuprofen daily, seeing doctors and struggling in school. My pain hindered my ability to achieve the academic potential I had at the start of my junior year. A few months have made all the difference, and now I’m wrapping up junior year headache free and 10 times happier.
    — Sidney W. (Age 16)
  • Before vision therapy I was having problems with copying notes and I got car sickness a lot. My memory has gotten a lot better. I can visualize a lot better than I used to. My eyes used to not be able to focus that well, but they can now. Vision therapy helped with seeing double, complete assignments on time, my work ethic, multitasking and my headaches.
    — Dally (Age 14)
  • Before vision therapy I was having problems with reading and I had skipped lines and words. Vision therapy helped me. They made me do all kinds of activities from sports to reading with flippers. It was a big help. Thanks vision therapy!
