Patient Success Story

  • Dear Dr. Chase and Staff,

    Thank you all for helping Jackson with his vision. When we arrived his teacher had concerns with everything - reading, writing, math, PE. He is now reading chapter books nonstop! His confidence and ability with schoolwork have drastically improved. Jackson loves playing sports, but was always frustrated and disheartened that he was unable to play as well as his peers. He now plays and loves playing all sports while keeping up with his peers. This in turn has strengthened his friendships! Last, I take my children ice skating from time time. He has disliked it greatly in the past because of fear of heights and balance. Last week he enjoyed it! Oh one more! Jackson used to get headaches / nausea on car trips. Now he does great with them!

    Thank you! Jenna.
