'I was aware there was some sort of learning issue with my child by the time he was three.
At the age of 3 and 4 he underwent various standard tests, all of which came back within ‘normal’ range. It was not until he was 6 that I revisited the issue and had him tested for absolutely everything. Again all tests came back with no further explanation as to where the problem might lie.
It was at this point, it was suggested that I consider having his eyes tested. I was very dismissive of this suggestion, as I thought it seemed very unlikely his problems were eye-related. In fact, he had just had an eye test at the Paediatricians only weeks before and was told he had excellent vision. I was told this was no ordinary vision test and the eyes are very complex and in my son’s case, tests should be conducted. Not wanting to leave any stone unturned, I made an appointment with Zoran Pejic who cam very highly recommended by Ailsa Hill at Brain Train.
I knew I was on to something when I filled out the questionnaire. All of the questions that were being asked were entirely relevant to my son. I was amazed at the correlations: the bad coordination, the lack of eye contact, the short attention span and confusion after a series of verbal instructions. It was all making sense now.
Zoran explained thoroughly the tests and test results. He even demonstrated tests on my son; I was amazed how I could clearly see the problem. Zoran went on to explain how this condition effects coordination, motor skills, reading, writing, even listening. It is very hard to ‘focus’ on some one speaking to you when you quite literally can not focus.
We started a strict regime of exercises immediately. These were a real burden on my son as they were quite uncomfortable for him to perform and they were time consuming (twice a day). Over time the exercises became part of our normal routine and became easier and less uncomfortable.
Sixteen months later, my son is a different child. His coordination has improved tremendously. He is confident and has better social skills. He will look people in the eye and maintain eye contact. He moved up 5 reading levels in one school year. I was truly astonished by the results. They far exceeded my expectations. In my son’s case, the therapy worked to train the eyes. No glasses were needed and the condition was treatable and reversible. He is a lucky one. I am so grateful to Zoran for all of his help and advice. He is incredibly knowledgeable and professional.
I would highly recommend Zoran and Orthovision. The results have been life changing for my son and our entire family.'
