John suffered pain, numbness and fatigue before Opto-mization

Literally see the world in a different way

Dear Dr. McCrodan,

The improvements to my vision, headaches, quality of life and professional performance achieved through the diagnosis and treatment provided by your team and you at McCrodan Vision has been life changing.

When I arrived at McCrodan Vision my symptoms were a sensation in my left eye of a nail going from the inner corner into my brain,  neck pain,  facial numbness, eye fatigue,  reduced energy and motivation due to constant pain and impaired endurance and quality of thought.

On my own I saw an optometrist for visual assessment and received from him a “standard” assessment and prescription.   This did not help my symptoms and in hindsight may have worsened them as I worked on the assumption my vision problems weren’t that significant and not contributing to other problems.

After being referred to McCrodan Vision and with the benefit of your assessment, insight and treatment the significant role of vision dysfunction on many areas of my life came into focus.

Fortunately as I near the completion of my vision therapy and with the benefit of new prescriptions from you there has been a major improvement in my vision,  headaches, facial numbness, motivation and quality of life and work.

McCrodan Vision therapy has required commitment.   Improvement comes from doing the therapy exercises on a dedicated basis.   Fortunately for me there were steady improvements and even if on a week to week basis scores in a specific exercise  did not always improve the overall improvement in my health and vision was obvious and constant.

Vision is incredibly important to our lives.  It is easy to take for granted because the vast majority of us assume its just there and if something is little blurry or ours eyes are tired, “no big deal” we will just get a pair of glasses.

Vision is a big deal. Vision is not just how our eyes work.  Vision is about how our eyes work with our brain and what happens when they are not properly integrated.  Over 30% of our brains’ function is involved in receiving and processing the signals from our eyes.   When those signals are not coming in right and the brain is constantly scrambling to sort the signals out it causes major problems.   Glasses alone do not solve these problems.

Thanks to the dedicated staff at McCrodan Vision I have learned a lot about our vision, regained a large portion of my life that I thought was permanently lost and literally see the world in a different way.

On a very personal level I wish to extend my deep appreciation to everyone at McCrodan Vision for their constant warmth, kindness and support through this process.   Over the past 6 months I have come to look forward to our weekly assessment and training sessions and will have some regret when they are complete.

To you specifically I wish to extend my appreciation for your dedication, energy and courage to go beyond the current standard practice of vision care and provide a process and place where vision improvement such as I achieved occurs.
