Teachers Notice Vision Problems

In this video, 4 school teachers experience some common vision conditions which can affect a person’s ability to read and learn. Many of these conditions go undetected during school vision screenings; therefore, it’s important to remember that even if you do not need glasses – this does not mean perfect vision. If your child struggles in school, or you are struggling to do visual activities after a concussion, you may need a Visual Skills Assessment. We can treat these binocular vision dysfunctions with vision therapy.

Learn more at our Vision Therapy Info Night with Dr. Claudia Lee on September 28 at 6:30pm! The event will take place at Brooklin Vision Care (6 Roebuck St.)

Vision Therapy Helped His Blurry Vision

Feel Good Friday! M graduated from VT in the fall, but we just saw him back in the office recently for his regular eye exam, and he’s happy and doing well 🙂
 
M is a 15 year old boy whose doctor referred him to Dr. Lee because his vision was constantly blurry. He had trouble seeing in the distance, and also up close. He had trouble switching from his phone to the laptop and from looking at his desk up at the chalkboard. He had a lot of difficulty copying from the board. When he read, he had to hold things very close to his face (10cm). He had seen other doctors in the past, but they all told him that he didn’t need glasses, and nothing was wrong. Luckily, his latest optometrist realized there was an issue, and sent him for vision therapy.
M was diagnosed with severe Convergence Insufficiency, and Accommodative Dysfunction. He was given glasses to help his eyes focus, which helped at first, and he also started vision therapy to help improve his visual skills. After about 6 months of office therapy, along with diligent home practice, M no longer needed the glasses! He no longer complained of blurriness and double vision. He used to see the words moving around on the page when reading, but now he could read comfortably, and look from his laptop to the chalkboard and back to his desk easily. His referring optometrist even said that he seemed to be like a new person – at the first visit, M was very moody and disinterested, but this year, he was very pleasant and cooperative. We are so happy that vision therapy helped solve the problems he’d been suffering for so long! 🙂

Vision Therapy Helped Her Stop Seeing Double

Last year, we had so many vision therapy graduates! This year, we want to get back into the habit of highlighting their hard work and accomplishments! 🙂
M was in grade 3 when she was referred to our office due to blurry vision, and seeing double when reading. She had noticed it getting worse over the last 6 months. She was performing on grade level for school, but didn’t like reading because it made her tired, and she found it easier to close one eye when reading. She was diagnosed with Convergence Insufficiency and Accommodative Insufficiency, which means her eyes had difficulty working together to point at the same target up close, and they had trouble focusing her eyes to see clearly at near. Imagine how hard she must’ve had to work in order to do her schoolwork!
She completed 14 sessions of vision therapy, and she no longer experienced double vision or blurriness when reading. She had also gotten a pair of reading glasses, which helped at first, but she doesn’t need to wear them anymore. Her parents noticed her reading a lot more on her own, and without complaining. She now can enjoy reading more 🙂 She worked hard to achieve her goals in vision therapy, and now schoolwork will not be so difficult! Congratulations M!!
