I had fun with Taylor! Before vision therapy it was hard for me to read and write. I didn’t like to read and write. Now, I want to because it’s easy. I can see better and do everything better. I am reading chapter books and writing lots of sentences. I wrote 10 sentences in my journal all by myself! I like to look at books for fun on my own. - Jack   Watching a child learn to read and [...]

After consultation and testing at his school, it was advised to us to have his [...]

A month later, I had a terrible headache that lasted for three days. When I went to the ER, the doctors discovered [...]

Just to warn you right from the beginning: This is not a happy, smiley article about how great vision therapy was for me. The end result was great, but therapy was tough, frustrating, and exhausting. And some days, it felt pointless. I was in tears after every appointment the first couple months. I didn't want to go, especially since I had to take Lyft or ask a friend to drive me. (I couldn't drive, because a bad concussion had left [...]
