You CAN teach an adult brain new tricks! I’ve had issues with dizziness and my vision for 13 years (a situation that began shortly after severe sinus infection with fever). I went to a number of specialists, but Dr. Watt saw something that no one else had seen. My eyes and brain were not working together well.
Some of the things I have dealt with over the years: headaches; blurry and sometimes double vision; feeling like I was on a boat even while standing still; images looking doubled, or as if they didn’t exactly line up; unable to drive long distances without my eyes getting extremely tired and blurry (this effect would last of r hours after I had stopped driving); visual overload in crowds or while looking at anything busy.
I never realized my eyes were each fighting to see, instead of working together as a team. Through the vision therapy at their office and the daily homework (yes, you have homework- give yourself the best chance to succeed and don’t skip it!) Dr. Watt and the amazing Sheila helped me retrain my brain and eyes to work together. Sometimes I could see a definite change during just one exercise.
Dr. Watt truly cares about his patients and his desire to improve the quality of life for each one of them is extremely evident. He thinks outside the box. Sheila was wonderful to work with, and very encouraging, especially when I had challenging days. She was patient and really took the time to individualize a program for me.
I am so thankful for this team and how they helped me. I rarely have headaches or double vision now, I feel more balanced, and I can function much more effectively, being able to make sense of what I’m seeing.
If you are an adult and think it’s too late for you, it’s not! Your brain is amazing and can do great new things!-Angie
