Vision Therapy Success Stories
No More Headaches!
John's headaches have disappeared completely. He reads more fluently without skipping words and lines. His frustration level has been significantly lowered due to the success of the therapy.
Susan Zitas, John's Mother
I have no more headaches and I am able to see a little clearer. I'm also less dependent on my glasses. I am very happy with the results.
No more headaches, eye strain or discomfort while reading, taking notes, or using computers.
Eric no longer complains about headaches! He has no discomfort after working on the computer or playing video games.
Shawn Schwartz, Eric's Parent
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.
I don't lose my place when reading and I don't get headaches any more. I can do near work without getting a headache.
Danny no longer complains of headaches when reading or of fatigue. I really did not believe in Vision Therapy much in the beginning, but I can see the change now that he has done it.

Elyse Krakower's Parents
It is now almost two years since I finished my therapy, but the results are lasting. At the time I started therapy, my headaches were unbearable. They were caused by my weak eye muscles. My age was against me, but everyone in the optometrist's office kept encouraging me until my goals were reached.
The main change is no more headaches! I must admit that I never really believed I could change my eye muscles. It was hard work that took up to an hour a day, for over a year [due to patient's age]. When I was done, I was afraid that with time I would regress. Thankfully, that has not happened. During therapy, I thought each week's new exercise was beyond my ability to do and then I was delighted to find I was wrong. Thanks again for helping me so much.
My focusing ability has improved. I can read for a longer period of time without eyestrain or headaches.
I don't get headaches as often as I used to. In addition, I don't feel as claustrophobic in small areas. When using the computer, I don't feel as constricted as I did prior to Vision Therapy.
Before therapy, I got headaches when I read a book or worked at the computer. Now, I don't strain during these activities at all.
I don't seem to have the constant blurred vision that I had in the past, and definitely have less eyestrain and headaches from reading or doing computer work. I can definitely see the difference since I've had Vision Therapy.
My work has become easier. I have fewer headaches and can work for longer periods of time on the computer. I can focus better while reading and am able to follow the sentences. My night vision has also improved and light doesn't bother my eyes while driving.
I have fewer headaches and have been able to stop most of the blurriness, and I haven't experienced dizziness as often as before.
I don't lose my place when reading, I don't get headaches, and I can do near work without getting a headache.
I read a lot professionally and on personal time. I was feeling eyestrain and getting headaches. The headaches are gone; so is the eyestrain for the most part.
Julieanne is able to see clearly at a distance. She can now see well from the back of the classroom. Her eyes seem to be more equal in strength now. She has fewer reversals in her numbers and letters.
Wendy Fontano, Julieanne's Mother
Elizabeth can now read without discomfort and has no more headaches.
Elizabeth Smith's Parents
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.
I see clearly both near and far, and have fewer headaches.
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.
