Eye Turn Fixed With Vision Therapy

We just had another Vision Therapy graduate!
B is a 7 year old girl who was referred to us due to esotropia of her left eye (inward eye turn) and double vision. Her parents noticed it fairly often, particularly when she was tired, and it was worse in photos when taken close up. She had already been wearing glasses for 3 years, and correction with prism lenses did not help. We started vision therapy, but she also had to start wearing bifocal glasses to help control the eye turn. B didn’t like this, but she wanted to try to make her eye straight. After 4 months of hard work in the office and at home, we were able to start reducing the bifocal power. We continued to see gradual changes over the following 2 months, and finally B no longer needed to wear the bifocal! In fact, she was able to keep her eye straight even without any glasses at all! She was very happy that she didn’t see double anymore, and that she was free to take off her glasses most of the time (though she kept them to wear in case her eyes became tired). Her mom was delighted that she is now more confident and doesn’t have to worry about people commenting about her eyes. B was such a pleasure to have in the office, and we’re going to miss her, but we’re so excited that she was able to reach her goals! Congratulations!! 🙂
