Vision Therapy Success Stories
Before you enter vision therapy, we have you complete a Goals sheet to help rank order or prioritize issues to be resolved through vision therapy. Upon completion of vision therapy, we ask you how well your goals were met. These survey forms become the basis for Success Stories.
With your permission, we place these stories where they are prominently visible in the office so that other patients can benefit from this knowledge. Thankfully the vast majority of comments are positive, but we put everything out there. It is fine if you write that despite making progress, there are further changes you anticipate seeing. We also follow up one year after therapy, and sometimes a patient needs time to consolidate some of the changes made before transfer to everyday demands are complete.
Here are some powerful comments from one of our adult patients, Greg Voth:
"Strabismus has been my life-long enemy. Because of its interference during my developmental years, both physical and intellectual pursuits proved truly difficult. Sports were unwinnable. Reading and comprehension problems made intellectual pursuits improbable. This all greatly impacted my self-esteem.
It's a brave new world for me now being able to read and write with help from those same eyes now see so often in stereo. I can read far longer without fear of headaches. Every so often, the act of reading actually pulls me into a swoon of stereo. To now be reading book after book, instead of recuperating from the headaches and eye strain caused from reading a single volume or part thereof is a godsend … As a graphic designer and computer artist, my eyes do tire when overused, yet I bounce back and my fear of headaches is slowly vanishing as I continue to trust my new eyesight.”
Going to an opthalmologist or opometrist for a new eyeglass prescription every 6 months.
Buying two new pairs of glasses every 6 months (at my vision range you have to have a backup)...
... still no being able to "see"
Going to vision therapy every week for 3 months and...
..."seeing" the best I've seen in years
... and needing to buy only one pair of glasses because I could use the previous glasses as emergency backups!
