Discovering that your child has a vision disorder can be frustrating and overwhelming. You may see them struggling with everyday activities and want to do everything you can to help get the problem corrected. Vision Therapy is a type of visual training (like physical therapy for the eyes and brain) that uses a series of eye exercises to recover normal visual skills. It is very successful for treating many types of vision disorders including amplyopia (lazy eye), crossing eyes, visual tracking issues, focusing or convergence issues, or visual impairment due to a concussion or traumatic injury.
If you are considering Vision Therapy as an option, but are not sure if it is right for your child, read about these parents’ experiences after bringing their kids to Dr. Martin at the Family Vision Development Center in Aurora.
Vision Therapy Can Help With School Struggles
Prior to vision therapy, our son struggled in school. He avoided reading and anything that had to do with writing. Homework was a nightmare and very stressful on the household.
Since he has completed the vision therapy program, school has become easier & he no longer needs reading programs. If it wasn’t for Dr. Martin & his team, I believe things would have progressively got worse.
–Parent of C.C.
Before we started Vision Therapy, getting our daughter to do homework was a nightmare! No first grader should have to sit at the table for nearly an hour writing ten words. She was diagnosed with ADHD because of this lack of focus.
I learned about Vision Therapy and decided to go forward with it. The last few weeks really opened the door for her – she’s reading chapter books! She is blazing thru her math problems & she’s gotten more coordinated physically.
I am SO GLAD we found Dr. Martin while she’s this young – the future is now firmly in her own hands.
–Parent of A.H.
Thanks for all of your work with our son! He’s reading at grade level now and he gets more work done at school so he’s bringing home less homework!
–Parent of R.J.M.
Vision Therapy Can Bring the Joy Back to Reading
Thanks to the whole Family Vision team! My daughter is now an avid reader who is happy to pick up a book! What a change 6 months can make.
–Parent of M.H.
Thank you Family Vision for helping my son. He has been improving on his grades in school because he can now focus better. I think his concentration and being able to retain information has improved as well.
I was most excited when I saw him actually reading a book for fun! That never happened before!
–Parent of B.M.
Vision Therapy Can Improve Quality of Life
What an amazing life changing journey this has been for not only our son, but for us as well!
Before Vision Therapy, he struggled for years in school. Every evening there was homework for hours. His self-confidence was very low.
From the beginning, Dr. Martin & staff had a goal for him that no one else thought he was capable of. We cannot thank you enough for opening so many doors that were shut before.
Love you guys!
–Parent of H.S.

We’re very happy for our son’s therapy results! Dr. Martin put together a fantastic team to make it happen & make it a pleasant experience each week.
The environment is very positive – we really appreciate the knowledge, patience, & professionalism that Dr. Martin, Kim, & Nancy have demonstrated. We would recommend the team to anyone who needs a good, efficient, & cost-effective eye therapy.
