When I entered fourth grade my vision was 20/80. It was recommended that I go for vision testing. By having supervised Vision Therapy every Friday for two years, my vision became 20/20! My vision remains at 20/20 today.

I see clearly both near and far, and have fewer headaches.

I just wanted to take time out to thank Dr. X for doing such a wonderful job with Andre today. We got home from daycare this evening and he sat down and colored three pictures in a coloring book, staying mostly within the lines (up to now he was just scribbling the entire page up with one color, and not even paying attention to the picture on it.) He copied some shapes, drew some free hand, picked up some more raisins, and played catch. All this from a kid who doesn't typically stay with any activity for more than 10 minutes, and we have only had his glasses since 2 o'clock this afternoon.

He tells everyone he sees that he likes his new best friend, the eye doctor. Thank you so much and God Bless

My name is Andrew B. and I am currently a student at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. My vision always bothered me as a child, and I've always had trouble concentrating when reading for more than a few minutes. Because of these problems, I have continually been to see eye doctors. They always had a cure and that cure was always glasses. The problem was that I was never satisfied would stop wearing the glasses.

This summer, my father mentioned Dr. X and I immediately disregarded the idea of going to him fearing the many experiences I had already had with eye care. After some very serious coercion, I decided to give Dr. X a try and am I glad I did.

For once, the cure wasn't just to slap on some corrective lenses, we were going to teach my eyes how to work through therapy. The therapy sessions were actually very interesting. In fact, many of the individual activities were quite entertaining. I also enjoyed hearing about how my eyes worked before and what we were trying to teach them.

After 10 weeks of these sessions, I have had some amazing improvements. When before I just couldn't make something out, I can now focus on it and make my eyes clear up the image. I have also noticed some serious improvement in the length of time that I can read. The bottom line is that I highly recommend seeking Vision Therapy.

I came to Dr. X to get some Vision Therapy eye exercises to help combat occasional age-related blurriness [presbyopia] when reading. In my twelve sessions with him, Dr. X helped me so very much with his great knowledge and creativity; thanks to him, my eye lenses, which were starting to stiffen with age, have become far more flexible. Vision Therapy made me exercise and strengthen and use my eyes in many different ways.

Of course my main interest was my focusing [acuity, clearness of vision], and to develop that flexibility, Dr. X gave me a sequence of increasingly more difficult visual activities. These focusing activities were part of a varying regimen I was given at each session. Other activities were for many different functions and aspects of the eyes and vision, and meant to promote their overall good health and high functioning in all sorts of ways. These would include eye movements, relaxation exercises, convergence/divergence, peripheral awareness and many more. Everything was taught and worked on in very enjoyable and frequently entertaining ways.

The entire experience was so very helpful and enlightening. I would hasten to say, all puns intended that I see things a lot differently and more clearly.

When I read, the text doesn't get blurry any more. My eyes don't get as tired as they used to.
Alysha Cohen

I no longer have the following problems:

  • blurred vision after doing prolonged close tasks;

  • loss of place when reading;

  • eyestrain, headaches or discomfort when using computer;

  • tendency to get close to the page or computer screen;

  • squinting, blinking, or excessive rubbing of eyes;

  • poor body posture when reading or using computer; and

  • inconsistent performance in school.

Rickie Gal

I have no more blurred vision after doing prolonged near tasks. I usually don't lose my place when reading. I don't have eyestrain, headaches, or discomfort when reading or using the computer for long periods of time. My reading skills are better. Copying from the blackboard is no longer difficult. I feel this therapy has helped my reading and work in school.
Caroline McAuliffe

When Eric is tired while reading, he will use Vision Therapy techniques to ameliorate blurred vision.
Eric Blumenstyk's Parents

I no longer have as many problems doing close-up work, such as blurred vision and eyestrain, as I had prior to Vision Therapy. Also, I can more easily recognize when my eyes are tired from doing close work, and I remember to relax them.
Sandy Holtz

No more headaches. No more blurred vision, unless I'm very tired. I can read faster. I'm more confident at work because of better reading. I'm generally more relaxed, less frustrated, and less angry because of getting tired at work frequently and feeling inept. I feel I understand more.
Nancy Bryant

Things don't look blurry any more. I can read much better now. Things have greatly improved! Vision Therapy has helped me a lot.
Elizabeth Smith

I have noticed that when I read, I don't strain and don't get headaches after reading. I'm able to control my eyes. For example, when I'm reading and look up, I can control my eyes so things are not blurry.
Julie Davis

My focusing ability has improved. I can read for a longer period of time without eyestrain or headaches.
Adrienne Kuperberg

I am able to focus a lot better now for a longer period of time. My eyes do not spasm as much as they did. Also, I'm not as tired, due to the decline in eye spasms. Vision Therapy helped me a great deal; it came out at the perfect time, right before I left for college. If you take Vision Therapy seriously, it can help you a great deal.
Chris Collins

Distance vision has improved enough to be noticed. I can now see the blackboard in school much better than before. I also catch myself now when I get too close to my reading material or a television screen.
David Vander Wende

I can see the blackboard at school better and the TV is clearer. At first, I didn't really believe in Vision Therapy, but now I'm glad I was wrong.
Molka Veksler

I find that when I copy from the blackboard at school I can focus much faster.
