Strabismus Eye Exercises Fixed My Post-Concussion Lazy Eye & Photophobia w/o Surgery!Susan Hanson fell and suffered a serious concussion (brain injury) with strabismus, photophobia and other symptoms. Susan's post-concussion lazy eye and other post-concussive vision symptoms caused depth perception problems, dizziness, extreme light sensitivity (photophobia), inability to do her own shopping or driving, and more. Susan struggled to do her job or just simply walk around. She had terrible balance and had to move very slowly and carefully. She wore a hat because overhead and fluorescent lights hurt her eyes so badly. She was very sensitive to light overall after her concussion - extreme photophobia! When Susan visited the neuro-optometrist, she flunked all of the binocular vision tests and many other visual-perceptual and eye tests. Now after doing vision therapy strabismus eye exercises, she can continue to live independently, do her own shopping, drive a car safely, move around more quickly. She has her life back. Susan received vision therapy and visual rehabilitation treatment at Indiana Vision Development Center, P.C. in Fort Wayne, Indiana. See http://www.indianavisiontherapy.com.

Misdiagnosed as Lazy Eye - Strabismus Treatment w/o Surgery as AdultRachel was misdiagnosed as having amblyopia or lazy eye as a child.

Strabismus Cure w/o Surgery as Adult - Lazy Eye Treatment Fixed Eyes, Vision, Depth Perception!Rachel was diagnosed as lazy eye with a strabismus (exotropia) as a child, but was told it was too late for eye patching or other treatments and she would have to live life without depth perception and other vision problems. She lived with strabismus and lazy eye until she found very successful strabismus and lazy eye treatment as an adult. Now, thanks to Vision Therapy -- and NO strabismus or lazy eye surgery -- Rachel's vision is corrected. Her eyes appear straight and she has 3D vision and depth perception! Rachel wants people to know that strabismus surgery is often just cosmetic surgery, especially for adults. It will often NOT improve your vision or give you depth perception (which is really worth having!)! Rachel wanted to not just look better...she wanted to see better, too. Fortunately, she experienced wonderful success with treatment without surgery or medication (drugs). Rachel went on to author and design a Magic Eye 3D stereogram book and created the Optometrists Network channel to teach people about the importance of seeing in 3D and to recommend trying vision therapy for strabismus at any age.

Travis and his Mom tell their strabismus treatment story about how Travis' crossed eye was totally cured -- without any lazy eye or strabismus surgery, drugs, medications, or eye patching treatment programs -- by in-office eye doctor supervised Vision Therapy eye exercises. Travis did not just straighten the cosmetic appearance of his eyes! He improved his overall vision and gained 3D depth perception and better peripheral vision! Before Vision Therapy fixed his strabismus, Travis' lack of 3D stereo vision and depth perception actually endangered him! He couldn't see the cars when crossing the roads or in busy parking lots! He was accident-prone. He couldn't throw or catch a ball. He was scared to walk down stairs because he couldn''t see in depth perception. Travis bumped into things and lost things a lot.

Teenager Overcomes Anxiety and Learning Disabilities w/ Vision TherapyDaniel overcame his problems with anxiety, learning disabilities, and more with Vision Therapy as a teenager. Before Vision Therapy, Daniel struggled with extreme challenges with constant anxiety, poor concentration, low self confidence and self esteem. He also struggled with academic achievement, time management and organizational skills. Before Vision Therapy, Daniel was troubled and frustrated with his inability to do, complete or finish reading, homework and/or work assignments. Schoolwork, desk work and homework caused Evan high anxiety, confusion, frustration, headaches, and eyestrain.
Daniel was also awkward and uncoordinated before his issues were resolved by Vision Therapy. Before Vision Therapy, he was clumsy with all types of coordination or sports activities such as ball games, walking, balancing, learning to ride a bicycle, and hand-eye coordination. Before VT, Daniel was just very uncomfortable moving around in space and had poor posture, balance, and gait. In general, most physical activities and sports made him anxious. Now, after Vision Therapy, Daniel still does not like sports but he can do them now and he is successful with hand-eye coordination activities, like drawing now.
Hear Daniel and his mother tell his story about successfully overcoming these problems with a program of Vision Therapy supervised by an eye doctor (optometrist).
Diagnoses or eye symptoms: Daniel was diagnosed as having retained primitive reflexes with developmental delays, such as visual-motor and sensory integration deficits, including poor eye tracking, eye teaming and eye focusing. One of his diagnoses was convergence insufficiency. Daniel’s eye doctor explained that Daniel’s problems with balance, gross motor coordination, fine motor coordination, eye hand coordination, etc. were causing his anxiety and this was proven when Daniel's anxiety was resolved by the therapy. He no longer has retained primitive reflexes and his gait, etc. has normalized. He has much more confidence in his skill levels overall and is able to achieve his goals now.

Learning Disabled Child Diagnosed with Convergence Insufficiency - Helped by Vision Therapy!Vision Therapy was the solution for this young child who seemed to have migraines and be learning disabled or dyslexic but actually had convergence insufficiency. Before Vision Therapy, Kaylee had many symptoms of convergence insufficiency: she was at risk of being mislabeled learning disabilities; she had constant headaches from reading and schoolwork (suspected migraines), light sensitivity; dyslexia was also suspected because she reversed her letters frequently and could barely read or complete homework. She had slow jumbled confused reading with letter reversals, poor comprehension and fluency. Before Vision Therapy, Kaylee had low test scores in all subjects: reading, math, spelling, etc. All these issues were helped by Vision Therapy. Kaylee really had many of the symptoms of a common near vision problem that often goes undiagnosed in children and adults: convergence insufficiency. Once she was properly diagnosed and received Vision Therapy, she saw many improvements in school and life overall! Kaylee did not have surgery, medications or eye patching. She just did the Vision Therapy program for the results.
ADHD, Dyslexia and/or Learning Disabled: Signs and Symptoms of Undetected Eyes & Vision ProblemsDr. Carl Hillier, FCOVD explains how a child diagnosed or misdiagnosed as ADHD, dyslexic, or learning disabled (learning disabilities) can have serious undetected vision problems that can be tested and fixed. In many cases, the child might have tested as having 20/20 vision (distance vision) but still has major problems with near vision or other visual skills important to reading, schoolwork with their vision. These children need to have a comprehensive eye exam and visual evaluation.

Over 50% of children in Special Education have these types of vision problems and over 20% of all children do. Dr. Carl Hillier in San Diego can be found at http://sandiegocenterforvisioncare.com.
