  • Ella's Graduation Excerpt!

  • Emma's Graduation Excerpt!
    Emma started her 6-month program with a condition called “convergence insufficiency,” meaning her eyes couldn’t work together for looking up close, as well as blurred vision due to an accommodative (eye focusing) problem. Through a lot of perseverance (her changes happened all at once about 5 months into the program!), Emma has moved from disliking reading, skipping words and lines, and regular eye strain to being symptom free!

  • Kaege's Graduation Excerpt!
    Kaege’s main diagnosis was amblyopia, or lazy eye. In his case, although his “student” eye doesn’t turn (that’s strabismus, a sometimes-separate diagnosis), it doesn’t see as clearly as his dominant eye.

In driving, glancing at the rearview mirror without losing track of the road. Fixation is also the key foundation for other visual skills. Smooth, slow motions-- pursuits-- and quick eye jumps-- saccades-- are both built on one’s ability to control how his/ her eye is pointed. Read more
