Parents Support Group Helps Provide Answers

How can my child with 20/20 eye sight have a vision problem that causes reading and learning problems? I thought 20/20 was perfect vision.

My child has had previous eye exams and nothing was ever mentioned until now...why did my other eye doctors never tell me about my child having a problem with binocular vision?

How has vision therapy helped other children with the same type of problems as my child?

These are just a few examples of the types of questions that parents who have children with vision related reading learning problems ask. This group brings together parents who have children currently obtaining office-based vision therapy, those who have completed office-based vision therapy and leading experts nationally and internationally.

Those parents whose child has just been diagnosed can come to this group for answers and helpfull insights.

This group is open to the public!

In the last month I have experienced double-vision. After initial contact with the Emergency Room, referrals to neurologists, two CAT scans-one with contrast, two MRIs-one with contrast and blood tests sent to the Mayo Clinic, the doctors have eliminated new problems with a past brain aneurysm, mini-strokes and possible ocular myasthenia gravis. It appears now that the diagnosis is Fourth Cranial Nerve Palsy possibly due to a bout of viral pneumonia that occured one week prior to the onset of the double vision. I have seen a wonderful optometrist who prescribed prism reading glasses, prism near/far glasses and comprehensive vision therapy.

I have been searching the internet for more information about this relatively rare disorder and for a connection to other adults who are living with this, have been cured of this and/or who have insight about what to expect in the future. Any responses would be greatly appreciated.
