Want to tell the world about Vision Therapy? Start by telling YOUR world!
How did you find out about vision therapy? Chances are you learned of it through a friend, a teacher, or an optometrist who has experienced the success of vision therapy, and wants to help spread the word.
This word-of-mouth is the most effective way to educate people about vision therapy. It’s also the most critical, as many people have never heard of vision therapy, even though it could have a transformative effect on their lives.
The first step toward telling the world is to have people like you tell your world. Help us by reaching out to your friends, family, schools, doctors and community.

Hi – I’m not sure if you’re aware of this, but ___ recently underwent vision therapy, and the results have been amazing. (Feel free to add details.) I was surprised by how many people didn’t realize what vision therapy was.
In fact, 1 in 4 children has an undetected vision problem that can impair their ability to learn. To help increase awareness, I suggest parents download The Vision and Learning Guide.
If your child has any of the following symptoms, they may have a vision problem:
• Struggles with school
• Can’t concentrate
• Frequent headaches
• Doesn’t like to read
• Has double vision
• Has problems playing catch or is overly clumsy
