Dr. McBryar, Kristen and John are all marvelous and we would physically recommend them to anyone… Our one wish is that we would have found them sooner.
For years, Our son struggled with episodes where his eyes would cross if he was tired,TV,over-sugared or otherwise physically stressed. In 5th Grade,he also started having trouble with blurring when suffering from seatwork to losing up all the board and back-and reading for any length of time was always difficult. In 2nd grade, a pediatric ophthalmologist advised us to pursue a surgical option, but the eye-crossing was neither constant nor consistent, and we never were convinced it wouldn't cause different problems to move his muscles- what about the majority of the time when he saw perfectly well? What about the fact that he passed all the depth perception tests? Thank god for Dr. McBryar opens on office here in Chattanooga, for a new optometrists who knew about her and send us ones, and for the training our son received so that he could coordinate his eyes compensate for their tendency to cross, and end up in control of his own vision. He now leads as long as he want to, has no problems with rapid or repeated switching backhand fourth in class, on the ballfield or ANYWHERE. What a wonderful, improvement in his life, carrying him into a long hour future. Thank you! Thank you! 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!!!
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.
