Or as our former First Lady, Lady Bird Johnson, said regarding her daugher, Luci:
"She had long had an eye condition, now the well-known name for it is dyslexia. But there are many, many forms of that, where what you see doesn’t get translated to the brain in quite the way it should. It used to be a puzzle to her teachers and to us, that this child that we thought was so bright would not make good grades. And the teachers would talk to me about it and I would take her to the best eye doctors that I could, according to what my peers, the wives of other congressmen and senators, told me was the best eye doctor they’d found. And they’d say, “Nothing the matter.” Finally–no, this was even after this time–she fell into the hands of the doctor who finally discovered her ailment, was maybe after Lyndon became vice president. So it may have been still a year in the future. But it’s something that I want to tell a little bit about, because that lady doctor who took care of Kennedy — Janet Travail directed her, I think, as I recall, to a doctor, and his name I will too remember in a few minutes, because he has remained our lifelong friend. [He] figured out what it was, gave her a series of eye exercises that changed her whole life and personality, because she became an achiever up to her mental capacity, her very remarkable mental capacity, whereas before, because of this eye problem, she had just kind of been stunted, and frustrated, and angry. It changed her personality, her rate of performance; it was a wonderful blessing.”
- "After Mary finished her therapy, her Mom wrote, 'there has been a dramatic change in Mary's daily performance and attitude. Reading has become a pleasure instead of an unavoidable chore! Mary is excelling in all subject areas, including spelling (one of her worst!). I love Mary's new self-confidence and positive attitude - she no longer calls herself or thinks of herself as 'stupid' and 'the slowest in class'."
- "Holly's Mom wrote, 'I wish I had known you could have 'better than 20/2' vision and not be able to unscramble the words on a page. I wonder how many kids struggle through school with a vision problem that could be corrected and no one even knows."
- "After Mike was done with his therapy, his Mom wrote, 'Mikey is now in 8th grade and performs at or above grade level in all subjects, and we attribute that to the skills and tools he learned in Vision Therapy. After watching Mikey's progress and discovering the applications of Vision Therapy, I have become a vision therapist myself, and have the opportunity to help others like Mikey fulfill their potential."
- "Brooke's Mom writes, 'Because of Vision Therapy, my daughter, Brooke, now reads with added enthusiasm and excitement. Both her school work and her attitude about school have improved and we couldn't be more pleased!"
Please note: In-office therapy under the direction of a Behavioral Optometrist using prisms, filters and lenses, as used with our patients, is far more effective than home-based therapy.
