My son's eyes were consistently red after school and while attempting to sit down and do homework, he complained that he was seeing two of everything. He just fought me when it came time to read. This started in kindergarten and followed into first grade, so I had patience with his struggles, basing it on the fact that maybe he still needs some time to learn how to read. It was not until the school started to reach out to me that he was not at reading level and also acting out in class that I decided to take him to have an eye test. We were fortunate to coincidentally seek treatment at Artisan Optics. Here, their fabulous Dr. Johnson discovered what might really be going on. My son's vision was good, however he needed work training his eye muscles, much like an athlete needed to train various muscles. He sat me down and told me about Advanced Vision Therapy and the benefits it would have towards my son’s success in school and in life. If this therapy for eyes would lead my son to a successful 2nd grade and beyond, I knew it was absolutely worth the try. We completed the recommended course and my son no longer has double vision. He is 8 and not what you would call a “book-worm”, so it is still challenging to get him to sit down and read, but when he does he actually enjoys it and has not complained about reading once since completing therapy. I saw improvements almost immediately after the first 2 or 3 sessions. He now approaches reading with confidence and for that we highly recommend the AVT course to anyone at any age.

THE TRUTH EYES SEE

The following was written by a patient after completing vision therapy:

What I write is what I know
Is that right I do not know

What we hear, see or think
What is read when it can change in a blink

A blink of the eye Red in now Blue
A blink of an eye so tell me what is true

True to you but not to me
Truth is no more than a Mystery

In a world miss seeing eyes
What you see can be such lies

I was told one thing but it never stayed true
For a word would never look the same it changed and it grew

One time I would see the word one way
By the next time it did not stay

I look and search for what is true
It is just nice to know there are people who understand you

For I was one that was lost and could not see
But I found someone who actually could understand me

He told me there could be some change with some work on my part
It came as a gift and melted my heart

For I had struggled for so long with my sight
Every word gave me such a fight

I now see better day by day
Thanks to Vision Therapy for showing me the way
