We started vision therapy when our little kindergartener was diagnosed with Amblyopia at his kindergartener eye exam. During the exam, I was shocked at how big the letters needed to be on the wall in order for him to see them. Especially since he had known his alphabet for 2 years already. Then when he was asked to grab the fly wing on the stereo activity test and he could not see it at all. I started to get really concerned. We had not recognized any symptoms to his vision issues until he played t-ball and soccer his kindergartener year. He wasn’t catching the ball or chasing after it. He would not see his team mates running along side of him unless he turned his head to look directly at them. We found Dr. Steinhauer and started vision therapy right away to correct his vision. Dr. Steinhauer, Jo Anne and the staff helped us to improve our son’s vision from 20/60 and 20/50 to 20/20 in both eyes. He can see all angles peripherally and can now grab the fly wing and much more! His self confidence has improved over the year and now is ready to give sports another try. At such a young age of 6, and while it was a challenge to keep his focus- we were able to work together on activities required slight modifications and others he turned into games and family fun. In the end, the hard work has really paid off and we are grateful for the results. Thank you Vision For Life!
