Just over two years ago, a virus attacked my optic nerve, resulting in the loss of sight in my right eye. After months of treatment and the realization that the vision could not be restored, I began to look for someone who could help me adjust to seeing with only one eye. About that time, I saw an article in the paper about Vision For Life. I called immediately and met with Dr. julie to discuss my condition and possible treatment. It turned out to be just the help I needed. Simple day-to-day jobs, like pouring a cup of coffee or driving my car, had become difficult. I felt clumsy and disoriented when I went into public places like grocery or department stores. I also had difficulty reading, which was perhaps the most difficult and frustrating thing of all. I knew I had to try, if not to improve my blind eye, at least to adjust to living with it, so I decided to go through the therapy. It takes patience and determination to commit to the program. But, for me, it was worth the time and effort. I fell much more aware of the space I'm in, therefore, much more confident when I'm in public places. I no longer struggle with problems like pouring coffee or walking into people. My peripheral vision has improved, allowing me to feel safer and more comfortable driving. And I can also read much better. Dr. Julie and her wonderful staff have been immensely supportive, patient, and knowledgeable throughout this process. I am so grateful to have found them.
