A Vision Therapy Success Story

What was your child’s condition prior to Vision Therapy?
Matthew was struggling in school. Reading, writing and math were difficult for him. He complained often of having difficulty seeing the blackboard. His writing was often illegible. He was tired after school, and generally frustrated. Although he succeeded in sports, he would struggle with balance, catching the ball, and general depth perception.

What steps had you previously taken to get help for him?

We had taken Matthew to 2 other eye doctors for vision exams, after he had failed vision screenings at this pediatricians office and at school. Both doctors found no problems. We had also started tutoring for dyslexia.

Was your child behind in school?

Matthew was able to keep good grades, but reading, writing, and math were difficult. He had to work twice as hard as the other kids. He often brought home more work than others. He was reading below grade level prior to vision therapy. He was receiving tutoring in reading and math in school.

Since doing Vision Therapy, have you noticed any academic changes?

Yes, Matthew is reading above grade level. He is getting A’s in all subject areas. His writing and spelling are much better. He is less frustrated. He now enjoys reading on his own just for pleasure.

Since doing Vision Therapy, have you noticed any behavioral changes?

He is less frustrated and irritated. He seems to focus and be able to stay on task more easily.

Has your child’s teacher noticed any changes?

Yes, I think he has. The teacher doesn’t say he is dumb anymore. He doesn’t point out how much better others do at schoolwork than Matthew does.

In what other ways has your child improved?

He has progressed in sports as well. His overall self-esteem has improved. He works more independently on school work.

We are delighted to have helped Matthew eliminate the visual problems that had previously interfered with his academic performance!
