Vision therapy is well worth the response, time and effort. Our Son had a hard time focusing and writing neatly. After vision therapy Seth could complete a task in half the time if previously took. His abilities to focus improved greatly and so did his handwriting.

Also, he was better at listening. As a parent, we wanted learning to be fun for our Son, and vision therapy made this possible.

Vision Therapy has given or son the tools he needs to be able to scan and read the written word more effectively and efficiently.

He love working with John and these working sessions give him the motivation to gladly work on his homework assignments.

It amazed us to see the difference in the tracking of his eyes and along a line of it's from the beginning to the end of the treatment.

Dr. McBryar , Kristen and John  are all marvelous and we would recommend them to anyone I only wish that we would have found them sooner!

Prior to coming to the institute for vision development my son complained of daily headaches. Therapy has eliminated his headaches completely. I love knowing my son is able to learn pain-free for the rest of his life because of the work that has been done over just a few weeks in this office. He he absolutely loved coming that didn't even feel like going to a doctor or therapy. We are grateful for the relief he was able to find by coming here.

Thank you!

When we first came to the practice, my son did not have huge issues, but lots of small ones- trouble with reading, sports (hitting the baseball consistently), coordination, etc- that were not easily detectable,but when put together presented issues. The staff here were all very professional and loving towards him. While I was concerned in the reading, my son was concerned with the athletic side. Seeing improvement night off the bat gave him confidence that i have nor seen in him and made him want to not only Come to therapy, but also made him want to work hard. He has surpassed his grade level and above in reading and hit his first home run this year! Thank you!!!

 Elizabeth’s school work has shown a big improvement as well as the ease in which she completes it herself.

Her comprehension and fluency in reading has improved also. Vision therapy has definitely made a positive impact on Elizabeth school work.

Wes vision therapy has given him the skills he needed to promote confidence in his reading, writing, etc. For quite some time he was very defeated by school and didn’t even want to try. I saw quick improvements in tracking and fine motor which really got him to try on things that he didn’t even bother to try before. Because of his therapy and diagnosis and strongly believe he is on the road to success. He loved coming therapy and always felt comfortable coming to work with Dr.McBryar and his staff. Thank you for helping Wes, and giving him his confidence back!

I am so appreciative to Dr.McBryar and the staff  at the Institute for Vision Development! My daughter, Caitlin, is thrilled to be able to read without fighting the battle of blurry vision and double vision. She suffered with headaches and complete exhaustion throughout fourth grade. She would reread material up to five times because she was aware she was skipping words and lines. She was also self conscious that she was not reading as quickly as her peers and also worried that her vision problem could not be resolved.

Dr.McBryar encouraged Caitlin to persevere in therapy even when it was difficult and no immediate change was noticed. She also explained the purpose of exercises in therapy and explained the need for homework assignments. 

When results were achieved, Caitlin was THRILLED! I Remember her excitement when she could read with no vision problems. She felt confident and proud of accomplishments! I feel that she could not have achieved this great success without the guidance and instruction from Dr.McBryar I am so grateful!!!

Meredith came to visit the Vision Center for a regular eye-cheek When we were told one had oculomotor, binocular vision and accommodative disorder. She had trouble in school with numbers and letters (certain ones), adding extra zeros skipping words + lines and missing directions for her work. With just the glasses, which helped her with up close vision and therapy with her accommodative disorder, she immediately made some improvement with her blurred vision. The extra zeros, we discovered, were due to her double vision.

After 24 weeks of eye therapy, Meredith has finally graduated. She has great improvements in Math and reading comprehensions. She will also sit and read books for hours on end, whereas before she would start and stop a lot (due to eye fatigue). Manyof her ADD symptoms have been minimized. She is focusing, able to complete assignments much more frequently and has been making straight As recently!. I am a Firm believer that the vision therapy did wonders for her eyes, her abilities, and her self-esteem. I'm so glad i've found you.

My son used to excuse himself from class because of the anxiety of not being able to do the work. He would throw tantrums when it came time to do homework. He would never attempt to read, always wanted me to read to him, however if you asked him to read a single word he could. He could not read a sentence, only single words.

I think my child's words Best sum up what V.T. has done for him:” Mom, can we get this?” (the easy button on Staples) “That way i can hit it each time I finish a page of homework!” Or : “Mom, the worst thing about V.T. is that it is almost over!” He loved coming to Dr.McBryars office.

In 6 months my son went from not being able to read Hop on Pop by Dr. Seuss to finishing 2 diary of a Wimpy Kid books. The Results SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES! We what Vision therapy has done for our son and his confidence!
