Through vision therapy, my daughter has made tremendous improvements-academically, socially and emotionally. She is in fifth grade now, but by the time she entered second grade, I realized that she was having more difficulties than I could "fix" myself. She had already been diagnosed with Asperger's, and we had done much therapy for things like sensory and social issues, anxiety, etc. In her school work she struggled to get through each lesson. She couldn't focus, lost her place every other line while reading, forgot day to day lessons (especially math facts), complained of headaches, etc. She wanted to do well but couldn't!
I began my search by looking into ADD. She was diagnosed with ADD and we began medication as well as my changing the way I was teaching her (we home school). This seemed to help at first, but I could still tell there wasn't something right. So I took her to an eye doctor as a start (headaches). They said she was farsighted and needed glasses. Again, this seemed to help at first, but then she said the glasses didn't help her at all; she could see just as well without them.
So it went for two years...trying various methods to help her. Then in one of my internet searches, I read about vision therapy. As I read I saw my daughter in everything I read. At the beginning of her 4th grade year we began vision therapy. We really worked hard during the year. The work that was done with my daughter through Advanced Eye Center had amazing results. By the end of that year, she was reading with expression (she began to comprehend what she was reading!!). She wasn't losing her place as she read, her memory had improved (so math facts weren't so hard for her anymore), her handwriting improved and she DID NOT need glasses. Also, on daily comprehension practices, she went from scoring 40-50% to 90-100%! On her end of the year California Achievement Test, she scored a 98% in Reading and the test went smoothly!!
We have been doing various therapies and treatments since my daughter was 4 years old and I would have to say that our year in vision therapy was the most productive year seeing the most amazing results. For anyone considering this, I would tell you that it is worth every penny and minute you put into it.

I highly recommend this business for their specialty services, care, professionalism and promptness. If you have any learning problems, dyslexia or anything of the sort, try Dr. Jong and her team to check your eyes. My niece was falling a lot but had 20/20 vision; Dr. Jong and her team figured out her problem and she no longer falls. My daughter was having problems with math. Dr. Jong and her team figured out why and her math scores went up. I had problems reading Latin and it's due to a form of dyslexia. Specialty glasses help fix that problem as well. Dr. Jong has a lot to offer the community and I highly recommend her. This is my first online review ever!!
Dr. Jong and her skilled, experienced staff always give friendly and personal attention to this patient. My eyes have been in her care since 1985 and its has been very good care. I believe the Center has all the latest examination and diagnostic equipment. My annual visit with Dr. Jong and her staff is a great confidence builder.
The most caring people you will ever meet. It is an awesome feeling to have someone who understands what your child is struggling with and actually has a solution to your problem. I recommend anyone that has a child with a learning disorder to schedule an evaluation. You will be amazed!
It's been years since my last exam. Dr. Jong was friendly, informative and thorough throughout the exam. The staff at Advanced Eye Center were polite and caring. There was no waiting time and I was out of the office with a new prescription within 30 minutes of arriving.
