The visit to your office provided a wealth of knowledge in that, being a professional baseball player, I learned how to train my eyes to do things that improve my overall performance. I have always worked on the physical side of my game, but vision was just expected. After I improved my eye tracking and control of both eyes in just a few short sessions of Vision Therapy, I realized I had been overlooking one of the most important parts of athletic training: VISION.
My daughter Chelsi has improved tremendously since she started doing Vision Therapy. We noticed a big difference in her ability to hit a baseball, and her grades have improved. I have also noticed a calmness in her behavior, which I think is a result of the therapy. I appreciate tremendously Dr. X and his staff. They are wonderful.
Kyle Kochne, young patient
The number-one thing that improved with my son Kyle was his self-esteem. He seemed to think he was stupid because he had a hard time with reading, not realizing that his eyes were confusing him, making school work and other things like sports that took eye-hand coordination very frustrating for him. Kyle understands now what is happening and has learned new skills. His grades also improved (except for spelling). Although he still gets upset with himself sometimes, he's more lenient with himself than he used to be.
Alex had been the one child out of our four children, who all had a high interest in athletics, who seemed to have trouble concentrating on his game. In the middle of a hockey game, Alex would appear to suddenly stop concentrating on what was happening in the game he was playing. Now we realize that he had simply lost sight of the puck. Alex always had difficulty throwing accurately, or catching a ball.
As a result of Vision Therapy, my quality of life has been enhanced. I have made a marked improvement in both reading and golf!
Erica hated playing sports in gym. She couldn't hit the ball that was thrown to her and the kids would tease her about it. She was losing self-confidence and not enjoying school because of the teasing. Now we understand the reason for this. Vision Therapy is helping to correct her eye problem. It's so important for your eyes to work together properly or you shortchange yourself in many ways.
Sports were a nightmare! I could never score or hit the ball, unless it was t-ball, and even then I had trouble. In camp, I had trouble catching the ball and I got the name "Butterfingers." I felt really bad, and I faked sick for the rest of camp so I wouldn't have to go.
I wanted schoolwork to be easier and I wanted to improve in sports. » I have gotten better at both basketball and football, even when I don't wear my glasses. »At school » I can usually finish all of the problems on a quiz or test and all of my math worksheets.
I had a great year learning to do things that were hard for me at the beginning of the year. Like learning to read better, being able to catch and hit a ball better and I am able to make better grades at school.
