How Vision Therapy has helped me get rid of my chronic migraines and changed my life.
Kristen came to Levin Eye Care Center suffering from almost constant, daily chronic migraines. Her neurologist prescribed her various medications over eight years for her symptoms, but they could only make the daily migraines less powerful, never less frequent and they still occurred daily! Kristen’s neurologist suggested that she get a comprehensive eye exam to see if there might be a visual issue at the root of her problem.
During her comprehensive eye exam, Dr. Levin found Kristen’s problem—her eyes were not working together. This meant that Vision Therapy would help her with her migraines. After, a few weeks of Vision Therapy Kristen noticed her chronic migraines were becoming less intense—with no changes to her medications!
Upon completion of her Vision Therapy at Levin Eye Care Center, Kristen is enjoying a 90% reduction in her migraines, reducing both in intensity and frequency! The vision therapy sessions she undertook and the home exercises she performed have “strengthened her eyes” by making new connections in her brain—more healthy connections that help her avoid the migraines.
I’m ecstatic with the results of Vision Therapy! The staff was amazing and always friendly. This experience has been great, and Vision Therapy is so much fun!
