Our son has had great improvement in his reading speed and ability. He also has depth perception for the first time in his life.
Vision therapy with Dr. Ford and Sylvia was life changing for Levi. He went from seeing double, not being able to read and being incredibly clumsy to seeing clearly and … well… less clumsy. Visibly his eyes are straight, finally! His grades are finally good again too! Without hesitation, I recommend South Tulsa Vision Development Center.
Tripp has improved so much with his sports, wrestling and baseball. He has contacts now and he’s excited that everything wouldn’t be blurry when he wrestling now. Tripp has started baseball and is hitting and catching the ball so much better and with confidence. Tripp has learned during his vision therapy to recognize when his eye is turning and how to fix it. So now he feels like he is in control of his eyes. A big “thank you” to Dr Ford for introducing Tripp to contacts he loves them!
Vision therapy has been positive in Sawyer’s life – from improving her depth perception, to helping improve her handwriting skills, we are very pleased with the outcome (correction of esotropia). – Sawyer’s Mom
When Isabelle was 2 years old, she loved to read books. She constantly had a book in her lap and loved looking at the pictures and turning the pages. When I sat across from her, instead of having her on my lap, I noticed that her left eye would “float” outwards while she was looking at her books. We went to multiple specialist vision doctors in the next few years. They tried glasses, patching, and eventually wanted to do cosmetic surgery on my 4 year old. This was a surgery that wouldn’t correct the problem, but rather it would hide the appearance that anything was wrong. This surgery may have to be repeated many times throughout her life to make her “look” good, but wasn’t solving any problems with her vision. ”
“During this time, Isabelle had also stopped “reading” books and we could tell she was having trouble focusing on the pages up close. Her eyes were seeing two different areas of the pages, so she wasn’t getting a clear picture. My little girl, who loved books, didn’t want to look at them anymore.”
“We had heard of vision therapy, but none of the doctors we talked to ever mentioned it as an option. After a brief web search, we found Dr. Ford at South Tulsa Vision Development Center. Dr. Ford saw what I saw the first time she looked at Isabelle and took the time to explain what was happening to Isabelle’s eye and brain and how a disconnect just needed to be reconnected. ”
“STVDC gave us the tools and motivation to work with Isabelle on a daily basis to improve, not only her eye site, but her vision. With weekly appointments and daily homework, Isabelle can now control both of her eyes and focus on objects that are up close and far away, which will be very beneficial as she goes into first grade next year and has to copy notes off of the board at the front of the room. Now Isabelle loves to read to her little brother and sister and is a star student in the classroom. We are so thankful for vision therapy and the difference it has made in our little girl.”
