More Confident in School Work

Before vision therapy I got migraines at school and had a lot of trouble concentrating. Also after reading a few pages I would fall asleep. I have become more confident in school work and now I love to read. This year I made All-County Band and I enjoyed every minute of it and had no problems reading or playing the music.

The World Has Become a Very Interesting Place Visually!

I was born with severely crossed eyes. I had never seen any depth … the whole world was as flat as a photograph to me. After having eye muscle surgery I started vision therapy with Dr. Kungle. It’s been a long, slow process. It takes awhile for the brain to rewire itself … but I will never forget the first time I saw my wife’s face with shape and depth instead of flatness. The world has become a very interesting place visually! My therapy is now done, but I expect to keep working at home and progressing in the future.

A Marked Improvement

Prior to my son’s therapy it was nothing but an uphill battle to get him to sit down and do school work. His letters were being written forwards and backwards with no consistency. Memorization and spelling were just about out of reach. Things were bad and only getting worse. I deeply felt that something was definitely wrong, but no one agreed with me. Finally a concerned, loving teacher saw that something was not right and directed us in the right direction to Dr. Kungle’s office. After being diagnosed with a visual perception problem and beginning vision therapy, I began to see a marked improvement. His attitude excelled and he continued to make great progress. There are no more tears. Fighting to do work is but a memory of the past.

Vision therapy has helped me a lot. My homework from school goes much quicker and easier. My grades in school have improved. I am no longer afraid of hard work. I no longer resist getting my work done. It has been a lot of work, but it has been worth it. Thank you!

Confidence to Try New Things

Vision therapy gave me the confidence to try new things. I always struggled with reading, was skipping words and not remembering what I read. Vision therapy taught me to control my eyes. It wasn’t easy getting to this point. It involved a lot of hard work, extra homework and therapy once a week. But now I’ll volunteer and raise my hand to read out loud. Thank you!
