Discovering Vision Therapy Blog
We often feature success stories that have taken place here at The Vision Therapy Center. However, these types of stories are happening every day, all over the world. We are fortunate enough to have a guest post from Jenny Johnston, a mom who lives in Chico, California with her daughter Alli (that’s her in the photo on the right, with her sister Jill.) Jenny is so passionate about vision therapy that she took the time to write this amazing post. Please read, and share with your friends and family.

We were lucky. After finding out that our daughter had vision problems, her first grade teacher wanted to know all about vision therapy and the treatment she would receive.
Any idea in the medical community is subject to scrutiny, but the connection between vision and learning should be a foregone conclusion. However, many people aren’t aware of the impact a properly functioning visual system has on academic progress.
You notice your child has been rubbing his or her eyes after doing homework or using the computer. Naturally, he or she is tired, you think. But the rubbing seems pronounced, and it happens very frequently. You wonder – could this be an indication of something else?
