Vision Therapy Success Stories
Improved Reading Skills as a result of Vision Therapy
"I've done more reading in the last three years than in my previous 34 years of total reading experience. I passed the MAT test to become a graduate student with a 4.0 grade average.
I LOVE TO READ!!! I would recommend Vision Therapy to anyone who is in doubt."
Mother's Story of her son's improvements in reading, writing and sports thanks to Vision Therapy
by Mrs. Boxer
"When Dustin started therapy, he could not recognize any letters of the alphabet, nor copy anything written down before him. Today he can copy sentences with proper spacing, read a beginner's book with assistance . . . has total recognition of both lower and upper case letters . . . he no longer inverts numbers such as twelve for twenty-one, thirteen for thirty-one, etc."
Special Educator Report
by Mrs. Joyce Inouye, M.A., Ed.
"Professionally and personally, I am convinced that Vision Therapy is real!"
Yitzchak used to hesitate to read, never picked up a book, and generally stayed away from reading. Since Vision Therapy, he reads books and enthusiastically looks forward to reading new things to gain knowledge and enjoys the experience of reading.
Rabbi D. Katzenstein, Yitzchak's Father
I learned that I can read better. I sort of liked it here.
Giedruis' reading continues to improve. I am amazed at the improvement in his drawings, which are much more detailed now. He's able to do more word "games" (word searches). He's gotten a great deal more practice with these and now he likes doing them. His eyeglass prescription continues to improve.

Jeremy is much more comfortable doing schoolwork and any type of close work. His handwriting and reading skills have improved tremendously. Also, he very rarely squints any more and his eyes are much less irritated. Vision Therapy seems to have really helped Jeremy. We saw great improvement, and he really enjoyed attending the sessions.
Jeremy Appell's Parents
Kristy is comfortable with reading for the first time. She is participating with the rest of her class in doing monthly book reports. The best part is Kristy's newly found confidence and independence. So many learning disabled children would greatly benefit. I wish that Vision Therapy were more publicized to teachers and parents!
Kristy Lombardi's Parents
Many of the physical movements Meagan displayed while reading have stopped. Her head and body remain still and she does not tire as easily. As the end of the school year approaches, Megan's teacher compared her to a runner in a race: Meagan did not leave the starting line with the other children, but she will finish the race with or ahead of the other children.
Meagan Miller's Parents
I see a lot of improvement in Sonia's handwriting. Her reading has also improved. She complains less about headaches.
Abby Awan, Sonia's Mother
Brian seems to be willing to read more on his own. He seems to experience less eyestrain and fewer headaches. His eyes still get red, though. He does not lose his place when reading, and in fact is a very good reader. Brian loved his sessions with Sue and always looked forward to attending. He was always willing to practice at home and enjoyed the exercises.
Brian Barbera's Parents
Yisroel has calmed down a lot since he began Vision Therapy. He has developed a much greater attention span. Just recently he has begun to read on his own initiative. He can also read small letters. In general, he has developed a more positive attitude toward reading.

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.
I don't depend on my glasses as much for the blackboard. I don't squint as much as before. The biggest improvement is that when playing the violin, I don't need my glasses to read the music sheet.
Her eye no longer turns in. Reading has improved (that is, vision during reading). Her eyes appear to be working together much better. We are delighted.

Neil no longer loses his place, experiences headaches or eyestrain while reading. He is now reading at grade level versus far below. He no longer seems to avoid close work and exhibits much more confidence and concentration. Vision Therapy has successfully put Neil on the right track in school and has addressed all of the problems he was experiencing.
Leslie Krauter, Neil's Parent
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.
My distance vision has improved. Using my new reading glasses I can read easily and with much less strain.
