Vision Therapy was the smartest investment we have made for our son.

Vision Therapy was the smartest investment we have made for our son. Our son had problems seeing clearly when hunting with his father. He had no depth perception and could not see in 3D. Our family loves the outdoors and now he can see things while hunting and fishing.

I have watched our son catch a large trout from our pond with his bare hand. It was amazing! I was so proud to see him do what he is certainly capable of doing, having the ability to see a fish move in the water using his depth perception.

His motivation has improved greatly, and we have also seen great improvements in his handwriting and his participation in school. It is such a joy to have our son pick up a book and read without having to be told to do so.

Thank you to Dr. Winters and the wonderful staff at Washington Vision Therapy Center.

How Vision Therapy Has Helped

Our son has made tremendous strides since completing his Vision Therapy. He has struggled with his reading and other subjects since Kindergarten. Homework was a great chore every night and often ended in crying episodes. He frequently skipped or replaced words, and lost his place in the story. He had limited concentration, lacked  focus, and procrastinated daily to get his work done.

Several months after beginning vision therapy, we started to notice him read books independently for pleasure and demonstrated neater handwriting in his schoolwork. When he told me he completed his first chapter book, I was nearly in tears. This was a huge accomplishment!

Now our son comes home from school and has a plan to complete his homework and schedule time for after school activities such as friends, football,and baseball. Baseball is his favorite sport. However, batting has been very difficult for him in the past. Since starting practice this season, we have seen him hit ball after ball.

He also has an additional challenge. He has had Type 1 Diabetes since he was four years old. He has matured in this area by taking more responsibility in managing his sugars. We see a real change in his confidence figuring his carbohydrate counts, insulin needs, and changing his infusion set for his pump with no reminders.

Our son has really enjoyed participating in the therapy. Dr. Winters and the staff make the process fun and provide a lot of positive feedback. He frequently asks when he gets to go back to vision therapy.
