“Since vision therapy I have noticed my hand-eye coordination has improved. I am more well-rounded in general, and I am able to focus better. I also do not rely on my finger to track words when reading. I am able to comprehend material easier and copying things in school is done with much less effort than previously. One thing that has really changed is my concept of time has greatly improved. Before I could never visualize how long something would take to complete, now I can. I am also more aware of my surroundings and my spacial awareness in general is better.”

“Lores is more willing to read aloud in class now, way more confident. She is willing to try new things that require reading. Her grades have improved a lot and she seems to understand reading more. Recently on vacation she wanted a toy…. 5D and 7D games, never she would have asked for this in the past. She was able to see the game and wanted to do more.”

“When I initially came to the office, I was experiencing double vision, vertigo, and nystagmus (repetitive uncontrolled eye movements). However, after months of therapy I have noticed major improvements! My symptoms have considerably decreased to where I seldom notice the vision discomforts anymore. I am grateful to God and Dr. Maze for this improvement and hope towards a promising and “clear” path ahead!!!”

Summer and Sophia’s Story
“Vision therapy has been tremendously beneficial for both of our daughters, who are 4th graders. Both had difficulty with sustained reading and fluency. Now reading is no longer a battle, nor painfully slow. My girls are reading above grade level with good speed and fluency.
We have also seen gains in coordination and sports. One of our girls has become a strong contributor to her soccer team. Our other daughter is having a great time playing baseball.
Just as remarkable is their handwriting. The girls are frequently praised for their neat print, cursive, and figures, which they had struggled with before therapy.”
