Vision Therapy Success Stories
November 26, 2014
Vision Therapy has been working great for both of my sons. For my elder son, his eye power was rapidly increasing and that is when I consulted Dr. Sharieff and started Vision Therapy. The Doctor constantly monitors the progress. And the results were amazing. His eye power growth rate dropped significantly. All the therapists are well-trained, patient and friendly. I’m really moved by Mike’s passion towards therapy and all his energy. My kids enjoy working with him and look forward to therapy session every week. My elder son recently starting using Ortho-K lenses at night and is getting comfortable with them. Looking at all the fun my elder son (9 years old) is having, my younger son (4 years old) joined the party as well. It is more like playing fun games for them here than a formal therapy.
Earlier this year, I started noticing some difficulty with reading. I couldn’t concentrate on what I was reading and it seemed to cause dizziness and difficulty walking as well. Also, trying to do anything on my Iphone or Ipad was causing the same problems. I saw my doctor who ordered various tests. The tests did not indicate any cause of the problem. She referred me to a neurologist who found nothing and who referred me to an ENT. The ENT also ran several tests which showed nothing, but in the course of my conversation with her, she became suspicious that the problem was actually in my eyes and referred me to Dr. Sharieff.
I saw Dr. Sharieff for the first time on July 8th. She ran some tests and discovered a malfunction in my eyes. She recommended vision therapy. At the time all this was happening, I had just sold our home out of state and had purchased another in California that is about 2 hours from Dr. Sharieff’s office. I was having to sign hundreds of documents related to the sale and purchase of the houses, but couldn’t read any of them because of the dizziness; in addition, our move-in date was the end of August and I didn’t know how I could handle it with the dizziness. I had checked on-line and could find no vision therapy available near where we were moving. I was stressed to say the least. Dr. Sharieff agreed to start a course of intensified therapy and I started coming into the office three times a week as well as ding exercises at home every day. Within a week I noticed some improvement. By the time we moved in August, I could read and walk almost normally.
The staff at Dr. Sharieff’s office were very sweet and accommodating and did eveything they could to get me through this process as quickly and easily as possible. I can’t say enough about how much they helped me during a very difficult time. So to Dr. Sharieff and her amazing people, a very big THANK YOU!
