I first saw Dr. Cheryl about a year ago. At that time, I had a frequent motion sickness sensation, with many triggers (computer monitors, head movements, etc.) I also had consistently tight neck muscles. She prescribed prism glasses. After a brief adjustment period (in part due to my glasses also have progressive lenses for reading), I noticed the motion sickness sensation occurring much less frequently. My massage therapist also noticed that my neck muscles were more responsive and would relax more easily. I now wear my glasses all the time, because I notice the motion sickness feeling if I don’t have them on. I also see more clearly (even though my “regular” eye doctor doesn’t think I need anything beyond basic reading glasses).
In addition to providing a solution to this problem that no other provider could (and I tried a lot of specialists!), Dr. Cheryl and her staff are consistently helpful and caring. Dr. Cheryl called me a few weeks after I got my first pair of glasses to check on how I was doing. She and a member of her staff helped me pick out frames that would be good for prism lenses, and also look and feel good on me.
If you are reading this because you think you might have a problem similar to mine, I encourage you to give it a try. Although wearing glasses takes some adjustment, the risk is so much less than taking medication. And, glasses are a one-time cost and this treatment does not take a lot of time. I drive 2 hours to see Dr. Cheryl, so I’m glad that I now only have to go about once a year. However, the drive is worth it.
