This is why we do what we do!
"Before vision therapy, I would become easily frustrated when trying to read and would have to read information many times before I would understand it. Struggling to read made it challenging for me in school because I had to read in every subject. When my parents would encourage me to read a book I would often times become so frustrated that I would cry.
Vision therapy helped me in so many ways! I am no longer struggling to read and it has made school much easier for me. I don't have to re-read things many times anymore. Being able to read without difficulty has made me much more confident, too!"
"Before vision therapy, I would avoid reading and doing homework. When I did sit down to read it felt like nothing was sinking in. I was irritable and easily overwhelmed in crowds of people or in social settings. People would tell me things and it was like we never had the conversation. I couldn't seem to retain what they were saying. I would meet people multiple times and not remember them. It was super frustrating. Computers were the worst. I would feel nauseous if I had to spend any length of time in front of a screen.
After vision therapy with the team at Ithaca Eye Care, I have so much more energy. I don't need 10 hours to 12 hours of sleep anymore. I'm okay with 8-9. I have fewer headaches. I can focus, read and drive for long distances. My memory is also much better. I can handle computer and TV and I've gotten pretty good at a couple programming languages. My partner no longer has to do the bulk of the driving when we go on trips. I can do my part."
