I have lived all of my life feeling clumsy and slow, especially living in a family of very avid readers. School was a challenge, spending most of the time with Cs and Ds.
I didn’t start reading until 3rd or 4th grade, but could never do it for long periods. Taking notes was a pointless exercise, and reading notes on the board gave me headaches.
I still went to college and earned my Bachelors degree. So long as the class didn’t involve much reading or there was a decent study group before tests, I did all right.
My new vision has changed my world! Now I look at myself in a mirror or a recent photo, and I’m no longer self-conscious. My world has added depth and scope I’ve never seen! After 28 years I need more than 10 fingers to count the number of books I have finished in the year I’ve worked with Minnesota Vision Therapy Center. I finally enjoy reading! I’m no longer looking at the ground when I walk, but straight ahead! I only wish I knew about you earlier. Thank you, Vision Therapy!
