Isaac, Age 8
Vision Therapy has helped me to read better and really helped my memory. My favorite thing has been I am now able to catch a small ball and this makes me happy. I now love to play catch.
Sarah, Isaac’s mom:
I am amazed with the changes we have seen in Isaac over a short period of time. Isaac is profoundly dyslexic so we knew Vision Therapy wouldn’t “fix” this, but it has made it much more manageable. Since starting Vision Therapy, we can now play catch with a small ball (he was never able to see the small ball as it neared his face). His short term memory has vastly improved because his brain is beginning to trust what it sees. He no longer reads most of his words from right to left – we are now going in the right direction. His teachers and outside dyslexia tutor have also noticed a difference. As a mom I would say the single greatest thing to come out of Vision Therapy thus far is Isaac’s increase in self-confidence. I can’t wait to see even more results.
Harlo, Age 6
Jessica, Harlo’s mom:
Eye therapy has changed my daughter’s world. She can read write, & learn things a million times better. Dr. Ryan is amazing! He makes Harlo feel so special & she looks forward to going to therapy. The $50 incentive is so motivating for her to do her lessons daily & give it her all. The lessons change weekly, so she never gets bored. The staff is so friendly and welcoming. Thank you so much to Eyes on Broadway! They truly are the best!!
Elliot, Age 5
Allison, Elliot’s mom:
Our son Elliot, started vision therapy with Dr. Ryan at the age of 4½ years old. It was the start of pre-kindergarten and his teacher began noticing that he could not see a marker or pencil outside of his line of vision, his attention span was short, and his fine motor skills were weak. He was having trouble in gym with catching balls and with his spatial awareness amongst others. With the vision concerns we had for Elliot, we met with our ophthalmologist and received a referral to Dr. Ryan. From the start of the initial consultation, to the end of our last session, Dr. Ryan was not only our optometrist for Elliot’s vision therapy, but his advocate. Within two months, at home and at school we started noticing changes in Elliot. His focus was stronger, his attention span was longer, and his awareness of others was increased. Through Dr. Ryan’s professionalism, competency, and empathy, Elliot’s wold in which he saw things started changing dramatically. Vision therapy strengthened Elliot’s eyes to be stronger and focus more correctly. It has helped with his fine motor skills and attention, and more importantly, his confidence. Vision therapy is not an easy task. It takes time, dedication, and commitment. Dr. Ryan gave us the tools to incorporate vision therapy into our daily routine, and make it fun for Elliot. The future for Elliot is undoubtedly bright, because of vision therapy and all of the staff at Eyes on Broadway. We are forever grateful.
