The 20/20 myth

Did you know that 20/20 does not necessarily mean that your vision is excellent. How can someone have 20/20 sight yet still have a vision problem?

20/20 gives a measurement of a person's ability to read a certain sized letter at a certain distance for the short period of time it takes to read that letter.

Improvements in Music

Taylor 7 year old female

Taylor can play the piano now and read sheet music. Before eye therapy, the staff would go blurry right away and she and her teacher would be frustrated with her progress. Now she reads music and has confidence in her playing.

Evan 9 year old male

After 6 months of vision therapy. Evan's work at schools continues to improve with respects to his spelling and his ability to focus in class. Letter reversals in his printing are rare now; he still occasionally has some number reversals. He is more efficient at completing his homework as well.

Evan's piano teacher has reported that his ability to read the notes is getting better and better. Although this can still be difficult at times he does not rely solely on playing by ear as he did before.

We also continue to notice improvements in Evan's hand-eye coordination. His ability to handle and shoot the puck at hockey continues to improve. When he was playing catch with his Dad last week, Evan was able to catch the ball in his glove with ease and consistently. This is a great improvement over last year at this time. Evan demonstrates an increased interest in al sports and is now also playing basketball at school and football at recess with his friends.

We are so pleased with Evan's progress this far. It has been a lot of work and a big commitment but seeing the results keeps us going.

Great job Evan!!! And thank you, thank you, thank you to Dr. Neufeld!
