“Before vision therapy Ryan was having problems with frequent headaches and some dizziness as a result of a head injury on the playground. Sometimes the bright lights at school would bother his eyes. After six months of vision therapy (often twice a week) and doing daily therapy homework, things have greatly improved and he no longer complains of these issues.”


“Before vision therapy I was having problems with reading, comprehension, concentration and memory issues. I was labeled with ADHD. Vision Therapy has changed my life dramatically. I am reading better and remembering what I’ve read. I’m able to concentrate and stay focused on tasks, as well as focusing on conversations. As an adult, I’m fully convinced I would have benefited greatly as a child, had I had vision therapy.”
