Success in Sports
vision therapy I tried playing several sports. When I played softball,
I had trouble catching and hitting the ball because I couldn’t
see. Vision therapy was hard work but school and sports
are much easier for me now. Thank you for helping me with my vision.

Sports were a nightmare! I could never score or hit the the ball,
unless it was t-ball, and even then I had trouble. In camp, I
had trouble catching the ball and I got the name “Butterfingers”.
I felt really bad, and I faked sick for the rest of camp so I
wouldn’t have to go. I was playing intramural soccer at
the Middle School and I actually scored a goal for the
time! The next day, the principal announced which homerooms
won and which kids scored goals. I could hardly believe
that I was hearing my name being announced. Also, I started
reading faster and copying notes better. Vision training
also improved my golf skills. As you know, golf requires
accuracy. I can now hit the ball farther and get it into the hole
with fewer strokes than before. -- Ryan (age 12)
I wanted schoolwork to be easier and I wanted to improve in sports.
…. I have gotten better at both basketball and football,
even when I don’t wear my glasses. …At school ….
I can usually finish all of the problems on a quiz or test and
all of my math worksheets. -- Russell (age 11)
I had a great year learning to do things that were hard for me
at the beginning of the year. Like learning to read better,
being able to catch and hit a ball better and I am able to make
better grades at school. -- Rebecca (age 9)
