"Addi cried on the way home last night. She was so sad she wasn't coming back."
Since finishing Vision Therapy Addi actually enjoys reading. Before, it was a struggle to get her to read, she avoided it. The best thing was watching Addi's growth and confidence increase. She also liked coming to see Anna and Kristy. Addi says she can read and track better, and also hits the ball more during softball.
"Just wanted to tell you, Hazel was so excited about graduating. As soon as we got home, she jumped out of the car to show her dad and sister her certificate. She said, "I graduated!!" Thanks for everything.
She had so much fun coming to appointments! I think she also felt encouraged when her exercises got easier. Plus, her eyes don't hurt anymore when reading.
Dear Dr. Griffith & Kristy,
Thank you for all of your work with Hannah. I am so grateful for your support and expertise! I am extremely relieved and thankful for Hannah's progress! You two are amazing!
"I can highly recommend Dr. Anna Griffith for vision therapy for kids. My child has ... improved dramatically in convergence, focusing, depth perception, rapid naming, tracking and more. The best thing about Dr Griffith is that she is consistently patient and kind with the child. She knows how to move them through difficult exercises with gentle encouragement. She never seems rushed or impatient. I am thrilled with the results I've seen in my 9YO, who even says that the vision therapy "helps me see better." We are lucky to have Dr Griffith in Chico." - LC
We could not be happier with the changes in my daughter's life. She is 8 years old and in March could not read "The cat sat on the mat" After 4.5 months she is now reading at her grade level. She can catch and hit a ball now, she NEVER was able to do this before.
She likes jigsaw puzzles, intricate coloring, dot to dots....all these things she could never do before. My daughter says "My whole world is clear now. Nothing is blurry anymore."
THANK YOU DR GRIFFITH." - J and A
"I was reading with Katie last night and I am incredibly encouraged by her progress since she started working with you."
"I know that Liam is doing awesome, but to see it on paper just proves it. I showed his Speech and language therapist his latest test results. She was just amazed and said "by doing VT Liam's whole education path has completely changed and will be positive instead of negative." I could not agree more with her." KB
"I have to share with you....Liam went on Toy Story two times this morning. He kept his 3D glasses on and actually could see! He scored 48,000 the first time and 55,000 the second time. He has never kept his glasses on and has never scored more than 4,500. Mike and I had tears in our eyes. Thank you for all you do. See you Thursday." - KB
“My son would spend a lot of time looking at a word before reading it. Honestly, I thought he was being stubborn. But, watching him and receiving his reading scores, I started to believe there was more to it.”
My daughter had done vision therapy for tracking when she was younger, so I decided to have my son evaluated. Matias did need vision therapy, but for a different condition. He was not able to maintain focus of his eyes or keep both eyes pointing at the same place, making it incredibly difficult to read.
“After two months of therapy, his reading level jumped a grade and a half! Now when we pick up a book to read that used to be beyond his ability, he can breeze through it. What a joy it is to watch his excitement when he reads. This would have never happened without vision therapy.” - JN
Headaches started for our son Chase (12yo) on a daily basis. His pediatrician had no explanation, and he was told by a Neurologist that he had migraines and recommended medication.
...Dr. Griffith determined that he was having serious issues with his distance depth perception, and suggested Vision Therapy to correct this. ...
After a few months, with appointments and "homework," Chase was re-tested and passed with flying colors!!! His baseball coach was even impressed with his fielding and his hitting! And, the headaches he was having on a daily basis, stopped! We hope to continue with Dr. Griffith in the future to better Chase's chances of pursuing the sport he loves...baseball!

Dr. Griffith noticed Jackson couldn’t see 3D. This seemed to explain why he didn’t enjoy playing any type of catch games, and would never leave the 3D glasses on at the movie theater.
Each week Jackson would get different eye exercises. They helped his eyes track better, trained the muscles controlling his eye movements and ultimately got his eyes to work together. It was a lot of hard work, but well worth it. Jackson is now enjoying playing games that include catching and kicking. He has found a new love of climbing and jumping off of things. When I asked him why he likes it so much he replied, “Cause I can see how far away the ground is now.”
My husband pointed out the importance of being able to cross the street safely and for driving someday. I’m so thankful to Dr. Griffith for identifying Jackson’s vision issues and having the training and expertise to help him overcome them.

"Before vision therapy, my vision would get blurry and double when I tried to read. My eyes would hurt. Now, I can read and I like it. It has helped me with online school and my reading is up to grade level." - E.L.
"During vision therapy, my daughter's reading level jumped way up and she doesn't complain about reading anymore. The most challenging thing was that some days were difficult to get her her to complete her exercises, but she did. The best thing, was everything! It was a great experience and I am so thankful for it!" - J.V.
" When I first started Vision Therapy, my eyes felt constantly strained and I was having a lot of dizziness and difficulty focusing. Vision Therapy trained my eyes to relax and work better together to improve my issues! - Heather Boaz
"After therapy sessions the following improvements occurred:
1. Street signs are clear
2. The edges of cars in traffic are now distinct
3. Curbs are clear instead of double.
My vision is normal again and isn't causing any dizziness. - Carol Cody
""It's a great program! You guys are so encouraging which helped her to stay motivated. It's tough to commit the time at home to keep up with everything bit it has been so worth it. Thank you! - Tara Ayala
"As an eCommerce professional who uses a computer for most of the day, my vision accuracy is key to mitigating fatigue and ensuring quality of work. As an outdoor enthusiast, my vision is critical to enjoyment and safety. Dr. Griffith and the team at Vision Training Center listened to my challenges, helped set realistic goals, then curated a customized plan of action. Their guidance and encouragement were truly the drivers of my success. The results are not only measurable at the training center, but are noticeable and impactful in everyday life. I encourage anyone struggling with vision alignment to seek the support of the Vision Training Center!" - Brian Hudson
