I have noticed that I am a little bit more aware of the periphery, mostly when outside in the garden, which is a lovely way to start. I am not running my hand on the wall in the hallway, right side like I was doing more than I realized. I was aware of doing that or having my hand out to right in public places. or getting clipped to the right. this is so encouraging. I am 3 years post-MVA so even though I am worlds better, I am aware of what is still problematic. I am encouraged about the possibilities in vision therapy to help with other sensory issues.

Three cheers for our latest VT graduate!! After a concussion, she was having difficulty focusing and remembering sequences of numbers. Now she says, “my visual memory has increased and I am able to trust my memory more. I have more control over my vision.” Horray!!

Straight eyes all the time!
So much cuteness! This patient graduated from vision therapy last year, and today his eyes are doing even better than when he finished therapy! Dr. Carter will be presenting his case study at AMFECCO in México next month. Before surgery, his eyes turned in. After surgery, they turned out. Now they are straight all the time!!

This graduate had 20/20 vision yet still struggled to read. Like many children, his reading challenges involved both visual and auditory components. His visual system showed great improvements (he can catch a ball now!) and now he’s working on the auditory piece.

I have my son back!
“Of all the providers he’s seen, I feel you’ve had the greatest impact on his recovery. I have my son back!” This young man suffered a concussion last fall, followed by debilitating headaches. It took three appointments to complete his initial evaluation because his headaches came on so hard & fast. His parents wondered if he would ever recover. Over time, he was able to read for 20 minutes. Now, he can do 4 hours of school & computer without a headache! His mom and I both struggled to hold back tears at his graduation today.
