My family would always tease me about how clumsy I was. I couldn’t even walk in a straight line. This got worse as I got older until I tripped and fell in the subway. I became so nervous to go out because I couldn’t walk straight or judge how to step off a curb. I consulted many doctors who diagnosed me with anxiety disorder. I really didn’t think I had anxiety disorder at all. I was anxious because I was afraid I was going to fall due to my poor depth perception. I learned about Dr. Debby Feinberg’s work from the internet and was excited to learn that Dr. Cheryl Berger Israeloff was trained by Dr. Feinberg herself and she was only a train ride away. Dr. Cheryl understood my problems and was able to diagnosis and treat my vertical heterophoria. I am very grateful.
