Abigail and Issac

Child, Strabismus We are a homeschooling family with many children. Our two oldest daughters were proficient readers and learners. Neither one had any trouble learning to read and spent most of their free-time with their noses in books. Why were our next two children hating to do their academic learning...

Makayla

Child, Strabismus A couple of years ago we noticed our daughter’s eye wandering outwards. We asked our optometrist about this at our annual appointment. She thought eye glasses would help the problem and she thought we probably noticed it more when wasn’t paying attention. The problem still wasn’t corrected with...

Ben

Josie

Child, Amblyopia Josie was always telling us she “couldn’t see” and her glasses prescription was getting worse in her right eye only. We saw Dr. Watt after Josie’s initial appointment and he explained what was happening simply and thoroughly. After completing her treatment, Josie is now on target in reading,...

Zoe

Child, Learning related Before Vision Therapy, I was fairly certain that my daughter was dyslexic, she often mixed up letters and numbers. Now, after completing therapy she is catching her own mistakes when reading and writing. She has moved up several levels in reading and her math is improving greatly....

Clayton

Maya

Child Maya was always a good student, but she got headaches when she read for long periods of time. We were surprised to see the results of her first vision tests at Impact. She couldn’t get her eyes to converge and her eyes jumped all around the page when she...

Ethan

Child, Amblyopia, Learning Related After reading a chapter, he told me that he thinks he has found his new hobby. I never thought I would hear him say that he enjoys reading! As a preschool student, Ethan really enjoyed learning, especially the hands-on experiences that helped him understand math concepts...

Serah

Child, Learning Related, Sports Vision I didn’t notice any symptoms prior to Serah getting diagnosed with convergence insufficiency. But things were making sense after; I was noticing her swiping at the lacrosse ball, seeing two balls and trying to catch one. Also, her inconsistency at shooting the basketball at practices...

Joey

Child As parent’s, we honestly don’t know where to start because of how successful this therapy has been. Joey had been struggling with reading and writing from the very beginning. At first, we thought he was just slow at reading or maybe a little lazy. Not all kids like reading,...

Coltin

Child It’s never easy to learn your child learns a bit differently or that certain components to learning may be difficult. I was most certainly anxious about meeting Dr. Watt and the assessment process. Dr. Watt explained how my son was learning, what’s going on in his brain (not eyes)...

Will

Child Before we came to Impact Vision Therapy, Will could only focus on one or two words or numbers on a page. He could not track words on a page because his eyes would literally bounce all over the place. As a home school mom, I couldn’t figure out why...

Melodie

Child Melodie could read, but comprehension was poor and recall was a struggle. Reading by listening to others thrilled her, but without pictures to gage from, stories were lost when reading alone. She struggled with b/d and p/q reversals. Spelling she could do as long as it was right after...

Kayla

Child Thank you so much Dr. Josh Watt and staff!! It’s amazing what a year can do!  A year ago I was in the process of setting up meetings for my second grader who we had done three years of multiple reading interventions – tutors, computer training, various reading programs,...

Joseph

Child Our story started about a year ago when Joseph failed in his vision test at school. He had trouble with them in previous years but I thought it was just his nerves getting the best of him. He has never complained about his vision but I knew it was...

Shawna

Child Shawna was always a very smart child when she was younger. As she got older she seemed to struggle more and more with school. We tried to get her help at school by they never noticed the “issues” she was having. She was always saying how dumb she was...

Liz

Child I love to read, but I would get headaches if I read for any length of time. I discovered I was seeing double because my eyes weren’t working together. I just thought that was the way everyone saw the world. It took a couple of months before I started...

Danny

Child The change we have seen in Danny since he started at Impact vision therapy has been nothing short of amazing!! Before we came in to meet Dr. Watt, I was at my wit’s end with frustration over home school lessons, especially reading. Every single day, our experience went like...

Adults

Josh

Adult I was a world competitive figure skater that suffered three concussions in three consecutive weeks. Embarrassingly, only one of them was due to a fall on a quadruple jump while training. My symptoms ranged from: double vision, dizziness, debilitating anxiety, depression, memory loss, confusion, and the list goes on....

Joanne

Adult For nearly 50 years I have lived with various issues concerning my eyes: extreme nearsightedness, glasses, contacts, cataracts, dry eye- things that got better when I saw a doctor. In the last 10 years, I sporadically experienced double vision, severe headaches, couldn’t drive safely at night, difficulty merging in...

Angie

Melody

Adult, Strabismus, Acquired Brain Injury I had a stroke on Father’s Day 2015 that left me with double vision and corresponding loss of depth perception. I could not drive and had to patch one of my eyes in order to work. Fortunately I was able to get an appointment with...

Rebecca

Adult, Balance Issues, Vertigo, Dizziness I suffered from dizziness every day for 9 months, and no doctor could figure out what was causing it. A physical therapist recommended I try a visual therapy practice, and that is how I ended up with Dr. Watt. It makes perfect sense that “physical...

Mary

Adult I had a car accident that resulted in a double concussion. I became sensitive to light so my husband had to put blankets over all our windows. I couldn’t drive, watch TV, text, work on my computer, listen to music, or talk on the phone. All I could do...
