JoAnn shares her successes with Vision Therapy!

In my case, I had esotropia, which affects the ability of the eyes to work together.  My eyes did not work together and I did not have any  3D vision.

I am an older adult and all of my life I’d been told that ‘the window’ for fixing my eyes had been missed when I was a young child.  Aside from corrective glasses, there was nothing to be done to improve my vision or depth perception.

My experience at Minnesota Vision Therapy changed all of that.

Before the program, my left eye turned in.  After completing the program, my eyes work together.  Now when I look in a mirror, both eyes are staring straight back.  Noticing this change about half way through the program was one of the most magical moments of my adult life. 

Other significant changes include:

    Much less eye strain when reading

    The ability to look people straight in the eyes when talking with them

    Constantly being enchanted by the beauty of trees

     Going to the annual eye exam and being told that my eyes actually improved

Dr. Mowbray and her staff have changed my life for the better.  I highly recommend this therapy.


Through her hard work and commitment to complete her home therapy, Jo Ann was able to see in 3-D and achieve eye alignment.

Congrats Jo Ann!  We wish you many more enchanted moments!
