I can’t praise Dr. Lessman enough for the life changing therapy he provided for our 8 year old son. His knowledge and patience with him was comforting for what we came in to see him for. Our son was having horrible headaches while reading and as a result was falling behind. His anxiety levels and self confidence were daily struggles we were dealing with. Our son had 20/20 vision and didn’t need glasses so it was very frustrating to try to help him. That’s when we learned about vision therapy and he was going to get help. 4 months later he has been reading books on his own. His scores in school tripled with his fluency. When people say life changing....this truly is life changing.

When I was 16 years old I had a tramatic brain injury that left me severe double vision. At 29 years old I was having chronic migraines, chronic neck pain, terrible anxiety and panic attacks, severe vertigo and nasea. My vision was so bad I could not see to walk or read. I couldn't ride in a car due to nasea and I would even get sick when I drove. I couldn't do any of the things I once enjoyed. I thought my life was over. I came across Dr. Lessman online and he was able to get me in within a week of calling in. Fast forward 6 weeks and I can now walk for as long as I want, I can drive long distances, and I can read. I never have anxiety or panic attacks anymore! My neck pain and vertigo is gone. I am only halfway through my treatment plan currently and I could not be happier. Dr. Lessman and his vision therapist Maria saved my life. I only wish I would have found them sooner!
