In order to help others, who are trying to decide how soon to start visual training, we would appreciate it if you could write a few words of encouragement. (What life was like before therapy and how it is now- please list out what you or your child has gained by doing therapy.) I remember I brought my son for his assessment. I thought he only had an astigmatism. After the assessment, Dr. Julie explained to me that it was far worse and how my son had been struggling. I cried because as a mother, I didn’t know and I didn’t know my son was having such a hard time. The cost of the therapy was a shock to me and my husband; however our son’s eyesight and success in life were worth far more. It was definitely one of the best investments we have ever made. His range of vision has increased 10 fold and his vision overall has gotten better. He’s able to play sports and participate in activities without his glasses. He still uses his glasses to read, but at least he likes reading now. Vision therapy also was a learning experience for my son. It helped him with his memory, eye movement, numbers, distinguishing items from one another, etc. This was a lot for a 4-year-old, but it definitely helped him prepare for kindergarten and his future. There are no regrets between my husband and myself for investing our money and time in vision therapy and our son.
