Before coming to Vision for Life, we always thought Evie was just accident prone and clumsy. No one knew her depth perception was nonexistent. No one knew that her field of vision was only the width of a drinking straw. That all changed after meeting with Dr. Julie and her staff. Over the last 12 months, Evie has transformed into an entirely different child. Her loveable and goofy personality is still here but gone is the timid, uncertain, wall colliding kiddo who dreaded doing vertical math problems because “the numbers jumped around”. Evie’s ability to focus with her eyes has grown exponentially. Her rate of car sickness now hardly ever happens anymore. The six-year-old who would fall off her bike with training wheels while being stationary is now riding her bike without training wheels full speed! Playing basketball is now a source of enjoyment rather than frustration (dribbling is easier to focus on as well as the backboard). Evie wants to practice the piano now because she doesn’t get lost anymore when looking at the music to checking her finger placement. The list goes on. My husband and I are so grateful for this opportunity to help improve the confidence, safety, and future life that Evie now has to look forward to because she has received the necessary help her vision needed. A special thank you to her therapist, Sherry T., who week after week was a constant help. Her encouragement and commitment to Evie’s progress is evident because of the growth that Evie has accomplished. We are forever thankful for Vision for Life.
