Not Alone! Vision Therapy Support Community

Originally published 4/20/2013:

Today I came across a family-run blog with the specific purpose of sharing their experiences with vision therapy.

Vision therapy offers an opportunity to adjust one's perspective, to consider another viewpoint.


On the website, TheViewFromHere.me, a dedicated mother introduces herself and her family. In this intro, she catalogs the challenges which brought her to the office of a behavioral optometrist.


The interesting thing is that this particular Mom had the good fortune of stumbling across a Behavioral Optometrist! She ALSO had the GOOD SENSE to know that she was in the right place when she appreciated:

  • the thorough exam,
  • the attention to detail, 
  • the distinction between eyesight and the visual process, and
  • the logical analogies which her doctor made between success in a team sport and success in a classroom setting.

What I ADMIRE MOST about this Mom is her drive to share the wealth!

One recent, heart-warming realization:

"My husband and I exchanged a knowing glance and a smile. Slowly, our daughter is gaining her confidence back, and that enthusiasm for learning we saw when she was a toddler is starting to reveal itself again."

I encourage patients to make use of these wonderful resources, these people who have nothing to sell you, no personal benefit.  How wonderful to find a community of patients and parents who simply want to SHARE THE WEALTH which they have found through vision therapy! May your pot of gold be the connections you make with other people who offer stories of hope and inspiration.

If you have a story you'd like to share, please reply below!
