As a result of a stroke with traumatic brain injury that I suffered in March, 2016, I was left blind on the right side of my field of vision.
I completed the months of rehabilitation, including Vision Therapy, but I felt that there must be something else I could do to improve. Most of my doctors indicated there was nothing else that could be done.
Finally, I was referred to Dr. Richard O’Connor. Before Vision Therapy with him, I was very hesitant to walk in a public place such as a store due to the fact that I thought I would run into people or trip over unseen objects. I was virtually a shut-in and very depressed. I felt I had lost all my independence.
After completing initial testing and evaluation, I began my Vision Therapy. Dr. O’Connor gave me the confidence to return to most of my normal activities like shopping, running errands, meeting friends, going to the gym, etc. With his recommended techniques and special equipment, I can safely drive my car on a limited basis. This has made a huge improvement in my quality of life and morale.
In summation, I feel the Vision Therapy I received was one of the most beneficial and worthwhile treatments that I have ever experienced. I would like to thank Dr. O’Connor and his entire excellent professional staff for helping me return to my daily activites.
