Visual Overwhelm Success Stories

“I had never experienced issues with my vision quality until I was involved in a car accident and sustained a concussion. These symptoms caused a lot of frustration for me and I couldn’t find relief until Vision therapy. I was so overwhelmed with my symptoms and limitations. My left eye was shutting off and my vision was getting worse. As I started with my activities and met with the therapists at the office I started noticing improvements and it was so freeing. My concentration and concussion symptoms gradually got better and I no longer feel debilitated. I have absolutely loved my experience with vision therapy, I’m glad I didn’t live my life without vision therapy!”

“After my accident, I had gotten to a point where I wasn’t progressing and had many concussion symptoms that were not going away. This effected by daily life and made it hard to go outside or even to the grocery store. It was all overwhelming. Luckily, my physician knew about vision therapy. This made all the difference, I am now back to work full time and able to complete my day with less symptoms. I am so grateful! It was hard work and frustrating at times, but totally worth it!”

“CFX referred me here as I was trying to recover from a brain injury. I was struggling reading, sitting in the car with my eyes open, experiencing double vision, major headaches, intense visual disotring, and the feeling of objects jumping out at me. I was discouraged, confused and had come to terms that my life would never be close to the same is it was pre-brain injury. Vision therapy was difficult and at times I wanted to quit but the staff and my family encouraged me to keep going. I am not sitting here on my graduation day, able to dance, drive, read, work on computers, hang out with friends, walk without tripping or falling and live my life how I want! Thank you!”

“Fue una grata experiencia la terapia. No puedo creer que con pocos ejercicios estoy mejor con mi visión. Mejore’ en el movimiento de mi vista y mi atención es mucho mejor. Ahora puedo conducir con más seguridad y ya puedo conducir de noche. Ya no hay dolores de cabeza. ¡Muchas gracias Dr. Duval, y es especial la paciencia de Josh! Exito!”

“We have been so happy with the progress Brad has made while doing eye therapy. Brad has struggled for sometime with his depth perception, making it hard to run, play sports, read and much more. With therapy Brad has really progressed in the right direction. He’s more confident with sports and school. His reading and piano skills have even improved! We are very Grateful!”

– Brad’s Mom

“I came in for a normal eye exam and realized I had severe vision problems. I had been experiencing headaches, dizziness, and would get extremely car sick. Grocery shopping felt overwhelming and I couldn’t watch TV or be on my phone for long at all.

I quickly saw improvement with my dizziness, even though some of my activities felt really difficult. Eventually headaches significantly improved, and by the end of my in-office vision therapy experience I felt like reading for FUN again! That felt so good!

I’m so grateful for kind, encouraging vision therapists who encouraged me to keep going and to recognize my improvements!”

Congratulations to Melanie on her graduation!!


“When I started I felt like things in my life didn’t line up and I struggled with work and getting along with others. I didn’t realize it was a problem until I started doing this therapy. Now that I have gone through the process of doing the therapy, my life in all aspects has become simpler and easy to manage, from work to family and all activities in between. Vision therapy is not necessarily for just your eyes as it sounds, but it helps your whole body in check and to work correctly.”

“After my car accident, I started to give up on ever feeling normal again. When I was finally able to get treatment for my concussion I found out a large part of my issues were from my eyes, not just my brain. I assumed I was just tired physically, which made my eyes tired, dry and blurry. I’d had no idea my eyes were part of the problem! I’d never heard of vision therapy, but was excited to try. When I started vision therapy, I often felt clumsy, I’d lost my love for reading and driving (which I do a lot of as a realtor) was difficult and life was overall exhausting.

Vision therapy is hard work, but it’s been so rewarding. Even when I could not tell much of a difference from day to day, the progress checks were an amazing way to really see how far I’d come. Carter was encouraging, patient, and understanding even when I had a day or week that I felt set me back. It’s been about seven months, but I’m thrilled to say I can actually enjoy reading again. I’ve been able to read while walking on the treadmill! Even through driving long distances can still be tiring, the several hours I do in a day on a regular basis doesn’t wipe me out like it used to. I’m more aware on the road and my depth perception is so much better.

What skills I’ve learned have helped me see better. But it’s even more than that, I’ve learned to relax my fight or flight system and take a little better control of reflexes I was unaware of. It’s helped me be able to relax my body as well as my eyes. The clumsiness I felt was real, but now I am far less likely to walk into a door frame, wall or even trip over my own feet. It’s been such an awesome relief.

The games, activities and tricks the staff have taught me are things I can continue to do to keep my vision and brain sharp. I’m forever grateful for the care they’ve shown me and all they’ve done to help me heal.”

“Vision therapy has helped me with a lot of things, including light sensitivity, visual overwhelm, and headaches caused by vision. Most aspects of my life have gotten better with vision therapy like sports, school, and overall everyday activities, to name a few.

I started vision therapy after my epic 2 weeks over at cognitive and have done vision therapy for 4 months. It has really helped me to be less irritable, and I look forward to more improvements as I continue exercises at home.”

“I was unfortunately in 2 auto accidents. After the second accident, I was struggling with a concussion, brain god, eye strain, dry eyes, eye fatigue, blurry vision, and other brain/eye problems. That was when I decided to get eye treatment therapy. I was referred to Dr. Duval, who has been a great help. Dr. Duval and his staff are extremely knowledgeable and easy to work with. The treatment plan was really effective at helping me heal from my eye problems. In a few months, I noticed most of my symptoms had cleared up and those that remained more reduced significantly. I would recommend anyone to see Dr. Duval when they have any concern about their eyes.”
