“Allisyn is our 2nd child to go through this program. Allisyn had difficulty in kindergarten doing basic classroom work. She struggled in every aspect, including socially. Allisyn hated school and every day was a struggle. After talking with her teacher, we decided to have Alli tested. Allisyn was actually worse than her sister was! Miss Sarah was wonderful adapting to Allisyn and her personal needs and goals. Allisyn quickly came to trust Sarah and started to really enjoy their sessions. Alli currently is reading at grade level, reading is more enjoyable to her, she remembers more and enjoys school now. Alli also talks with her teacher with more confidence and has more control over her lazy eye.”

“Miss Sarah was so kind and patient with me. She really wanted me to get better. I am more confident now. I can read faster and remember more. My writing is better and so are my grades. The end.”

“Landon has always been a great student who has tried very hard. Five or six years ago, we noticed that reading was becoming/remaining a struggle despite our efforts of assistance. At that time his younger brother was surpassing him in ability, despite his best effort. At that time we had him evaluated with Dr. Myers. He recommended therapy at that time but we put it off because of cost and time commitment. I truly thought with maybe more phonics development, one-on-one reading, increased reading time, etc. we would see more improvements. While he was still progressing, he was still taking a long time to read (on tests), or we were compensating by my reading aloud to him.

We returned to Dr. Myers’ office in 2018 for an eval again. Therapy was recommended again so we started right away. He has had so much growth over the past seven months in his reading. He has completely read 30-page chapters in Science, where this was overwhelming last year (with improved comprehension). I am so glad our family committed to this therapy! With him being older he was very independently disciplined knowing that he wanted to be able to read better. Our therapist was Pam, who has many years of experience. She was a perfect match for our son and very encouraging along the way.”

“In November of 2016 I was in a car accident that left me with whiplash and a prolonged concussion, etc. When Preliminary Concussion Therapy did not clear up my bad headaches and vestibular issues, the doctor recommended me to Dr. Myers at Indiana Vision Development Center. Through the year of therapy there has been much improvement with my vision.  I no longer have double vision. My right eye is tracking along with my left eye now. My reading has improved, as for much of the time after the car accident I avoided reading because of the headaches and visual disturbances. I can drive and ride in the car for longer periods than a year ago; I hope that continues to improve because I used to do the majority of driving on road trips. My concentration and cognitive abilities have improved so much in the last few months. After the accident, I felt shut off from my life because I was not able to follow conversations or be around noise or much busy activity. But now I feel more like myself than I have since that life-changing event in November of 2016.

Thank you so much to the team at Indiana Vision Development Center for helping me progress to this point! Thank you Dr. Myers for your knowledgeable understanding of what each patient needs and your kindness in executing it. Thank you Becky for challenging me each week in ways that have been so good for my brain. I am so grateful to you all!”

“Going into eye therapy I didn’t think it would work. I figured I would struggle with my eyes forever, but that changed. There was a ton of hard work every week and it took a lot of commitment, but it was worth it. Reading for even five minutes would give me a bad headache, but I don’t get that anymore. Now that I know how to use my eyes, I am able to read with less pain and for longer periods of time. I have noticed certain skills with my eyes have improved over time. I understand how to use convergence and divergence, which is a cool thing to do. Sometimes when I read, some text disappears and I couldn’t do anything about it. It became extremely frustrating. Through eye therapy, I found that it is one eye suppressing so I can’t see that image. I know now that I have a way to stop that from happening. I may not be the best or fastest reader in class, but I may be the most efficient. Eye therapy has overall improved my quality of life in school and I would recommend this to everybody.”

“Carter is our third child who has received vision therapy with Dr. Myers and his staff. Carter had many obstacles he has overcome to become an independent reader and successful student, however, with the guidance and support of his vision therapist he was able to improve his focusing and convergence, which allowed him to see and track print much more efficiently. Carter’s reading accuracy, rate, and fluency have greatly improved and he is now reading on grade level! Carter’s understanding of direction and position has improved as well. His number of visual reversals has decreased and with attention given to his handwriting skills, his letter formation and spacing has improved significantly. While I am very happy with the improvements that relate to improved academic performance, what gives me the greatest joy and satisfaction as a mother is seeing my son happy again. Carter’s self-esteem and self-confidence have greatly improved. I believe non of this would have been possible without the benefits he received through completing vision therapy.”

“My son suffered a serious concussion in March of 2017. This concussion led to severe vision problems, mainly double vision. With the double vision came eye strain and headaches from trying to see correctly. The effects of the double vision were felt at school, work, extracurriculars, and home. My son first received special lenses in his glasses, which helped to mitigate some of the double vision issues. After setting my son up with the lenses, Dr. Myers set my son up with a plan of vision therapy. The vision therapy worked wonders. My son was able to leave behind the specialized lenses. Almost a year later, my son is back to pre-concussion status if not better. His hand-eye coordination has even improved. We can’t thank Dr. Myers and his staff enough for all the help they gave my son.”
