Christy Milks

Christy Milks is our Lead Vision Therapist in Colorado Springs and in Castle Pines. Christy came to Impact Vision Therapy with a legal background. When her son was diagnosed in 2nd grade with eye teaming issues, it changed both his life and hers. He went through vision therapy and he became a different child at school and at home. He was below grade level in reading before vision therapy and by the end of 3rd grade he was at grade level and thriving in the classroom. He had been labeled extremely shy at school, but after therapy he became a much more confident student and it showed in class. Christy was excited to switch careers and immerse herself into a field which means so much to her and her family. Christy obtained her certification in vision therapy through COVD in 2018.

“Vision therapy helped my son and I was fascinated by it. Once I started doing this, I knew I didn’t want to do anything else.”

Christy moved to Colorado in 1997 and worked for a small law firm in Colorado Springs for 14 years before coming to Impact Vision. She lives in Monument with her husband and they lead a busy life keeping up with their three children- Phoebe, Owen, and Henry. When Christy isn’t working, she enjoys reading, hiking, and crochet.
