After A Concussion, Sarah Improves Her Visual Skills Through Vision Therapy

Sarah used to be exhausted after reading just a few pages of text, but now is writing research papers without fatigue.

Sarah, a senior at Georgetown University, is a Division 1 varsity swimmer.  She holds three school records in distance swimming and has always enjoyed competing at the varsity level.  Unfortunately she acquired a concussion after hitting her head on a diving board while getting out of the pool and had to temporarily stop competing. Due to fatigue, double vision, and blur she sought relief for her symptoms through vision therapy.


th“Before vision therapy it was difficult to move my eyes across a page.  Reading for an extended time was unimaginable,” exclaimed Sarah.  “Since starting vision therapy I’ve completed a college course and was able to write a 30 page research paper without fatigue. I used to read slowly, lose my place, forget what I had just read, and felt exhausted after just a few pages of text.  I now read for fun and enjoy spending time reading!”

Sarah is going to graduate with honors and looks forward to a career in finance.
