“I underestimated the impact that Vision Therapy would have on my son. I expected him to be able to read smoother (out loud), to be able to read for longer periods, and perhaps play sports better. With Vision Therapy, he not only achieved these tasks above, but he himself has also admitted that he can do these things. All throughout the therapy sessions, he didn’t realize its benefit until it was time to have the opportunity to tell his story. When asked 3 things he feels has improved, he said, “I can read small print, I can read better, and I can spar better (in his kickboxing class)! “I am grateful that Vision Therapy has given him more confidence in himself. Thank you Dr.Kim.”
“Piper is my second child to do Vision Therapy, and both times it has proven to be an invaluable tool in supporting them academically. Her math acuity has improved dramatically as well as her reading speed. I definitely recommend VT for any child that is struggling in any subject.”
Vision Therapy has helped me improve my control over my eyes, my 3D and my depth perception. Because of this, I have been able to see in 3D for the first time and have had better aim in sports I enjoy playing. This has also helped my convergence and divergence, and my eyes have worked together for the first time. I am very enthusiastic with my results and would recommend this to anyone. I am now able to do many things I couldn’t do before, and can’t stress enough what this has done for my vision.
“Vision therapy has helped my daughter tremendously. Six months ago she mostly listened to books on tape and read along. Now she is picking up books and reading them on her own for long periods of time. She feels that her eyes can track the words better and she can do her homework more independently. Overall I would highly recommend vision therapy. Dr. Kim was wonderful to work with and I wish we had done it earlier.”
“My son was found to have difficulty in specific areas of visual perception and visual memory. Visualeyes optometry was recommended by his occupational therapist. He started vision therapy with Dr. Fisher and after just a few months of therapy he has shown significant improvement in his visual tracking during classroom activities. His functional skills have also improved. He can scan and find words and letters in a busier worksheet. His reading level has also improved. He reads tricky words and reads with more expression. His handwriting has also improved tremendously. The weekly therapies have really helped him. Thanks Kelly and Dr. Fisher.”
“Vision therapy has been very helpful to both A and D. They have both improved with their school work. A’s confidence in reading has increased, he has chosen more difficult books to read on his own. D has improved in his willingness to read and his behavior. He chooses to read for fun. A got straight A’s on his report card this quarter. We are so pleased with both of their progress. Thank you.”
“Two years ago, in 1st grade, G was reading far behind grade level. Two weeks ago, he startled us by bringing home The Penderwicks from the library, which is above his “just right” reading level. He’s been reading it out loud to us, and it’s slow going and he struggles. He’s been so proud to do it, though. He’s so proud that he insisted on writing thank you notes to each of you…The confidence he’s showing is due to you. You sat in IEP meetings. They made a difference. You identified his challenges. It helped us search out solutions. You supported his hard work to adjust his crazy vision. Now his eyes work more like normal eyes. You were patient. You encouraged him. Now he can read. You’ve changed his life, and ours, for the better. Drastically. Thank you.”
“I have been able to read for longer periods of time. I have been falling and tripping less. I have better awareness of my surroundings. And homework has become easier. Before I started therapy people gave me a catch phrase ‘have a nice trip, see you next fall.’ Because I was tripping and running into so many times. This was a lot of work but it helped a lot! Most activities were interesting and I have learned a lot about how your eyes work and about the muscles that control them.”
“When my son started vision therapy, it was our last resort before eye surgery to correct his exotropia. I was hesitant to have the surgery since his problems with his brain working correctly with his eyes. He has just finished seven-eight months of vision therapy. I’ve noticed improvement with his eye control and he is much more coordinated with sports, mainly basketball and baseball. He is more aware of when his eyes are out of focus and his eye control has improved since this first appointment. Dr. Kim has been amazing and my son enjoyed working with her!”
“Coming into the program, my daughter had challenges with her eyes tracking which makes reading and test-taking much harder. With therapy, my daughter has acknowledged positive changes in a few important areas. She feels her fluency has improved and her understanding of the questions being asked. Her eyes are less watery and fatigued. This all has helped with her level of frustration with school. She is more independent and more confident academically. With less frustration, her behavior has improved too.”
“My son has shown significant improvement in his reading skills. Speed, comprehension and concentration while reading is notably better. We have also observed improvements in his spatial orientation. He can now quickly respond to right and left directions, which used to be very slow. We are really pleased with the results obtained so far.”
“My son has made vast improvements since starting vision therapy. His confidence has gone way up. He has started to ask to read which is a big step forward. He reports being able to see in ways he could not before and that has improved his academics overall. I can’t say enough – he is doing so much better!”
“In the beginning I noticed that my son closed his eyes while looking at me or watching TV. While reading I observed that he was very slow picking up the words as he read across the page.
As of late, my son has made marked improvement. He no longer closes his eyes and has not mentioned seeing double or “fuzzy” vision. Also, his reading has vastly improved. He says he can see everything better.
I’ll close by saying, his over all attitude and confidence has vastly improved.”
“Vision therapy has helped my daughter academically as well as in her extracurricular activities of gymnastics, dance, and soccer! Her ability to track, coordinate, and use her binocular vision has significantly improved! She has felt as a sense of pride and accomplishment as she has mastered visual skills through her exercises. We are very happy with the results and positive impact vision therapy has afforded her. Thank you!”
“My son’s reading speed and comprehension has increased. He is less frustrated doing class work and school work.”
