At the Neuro Visual Center of New York, we are proud to have helped countless patients with binocular vision dysfunction achieve a better quality of life. In today’s post, our patients tell you in their own words how our treatment has changed their lives.
‘Making a Difference in People’s Lives’
“I suffered a devastating concussion in 2014 that left me disabled, unable to work or walk normally. I had slurred speech, insomnia, daily migraines, vertigo, dizziness and cognitive issues. I saw the ‘best’ neurologists at Mass General Hospital and had 30-40 sessions of neurofeedback, acupuncture, massages, vestibular therapy for over 3 years. I was just about to give up when I learned of a condition called vertical heterophoria and after a significant amount of research I found Dr. Cheryl. To say that seeing her saved my life is truly an understatement. I could not do anything without severe vertigo and had to walk with a cane when I left my home so I would not fall down from severe balance and gait issue. I have gone from being completely homebound as recently as January 2017 to being able to run 1/4 mile yesterday and walk another 2 1/2 miles, cane free and with NO dizziness or vertigo. I would say I am 85% improved after years of suffering. Dr. Cheryl truly understood everything I was going through and was very thorough, kind and professional. Her staff are lovely, responsive and extremely competent. I felt very well cared for and cannot say enough good things about this practice. They are truly making a difference in people’s lives.”—Marcy W.
“We feel so incredibly lucky to have found Dr. Cheryl and The Neuro Visual Center of New York. My son has been suffering from chronic migraines since getting two concussions four years ago. We have been searching for a reason for his migraines, and my son has tried a countless number of treatments. He was finally diagnosed with vertical heterophoria by Dr. Cheryl. He recently received his second pair of prism glasses and he is starting to feel better already. He can finally complete schoolwork without triggering severe head pain! In the past he would fall behind due to migraines and each time he tried to complete make up work, it would trigger a 3-5 day migraine. It was devastating to watch him fall further and further behind and to miss out on so many academic and social opportunities. We finally feel like he is going to have a chance to get his life back now.”—Theresa G.
“Dr. Cheryl and her staff are the best…. The work that is done here is invaluable to people who suffer from neuro vision conditions. Dr. Cheryl worked with me in a step approach and now my vision is very good and my headaches and dizziness are gone.”—Halina K.
