Meela’s Story

Meela struggled with reading and comprehension. She came to see Dr. Johnson because reading was a constant battle. She worked three times harder than her peers for her grades. She inverted letters and her writing was awful even after practicing.


Derek’s Story

Dr. Johnson suggested vision therapy as a means to improve my issues of headaches, concussion symptoms, and anxiety. I came to my first appointment with little hope, however I felt it was worth a try. I was experiencing eye pain and fatigue, constant migraines, light sensitivity, and bad anxiety.


Corrine’s Story

After my first appointment I felt relieved to know I “wasn’t losing my mind.” There were several issues that converged to create significant difficulty in reading that were solved with appropriate glasses and extensive therapy. It is felt that this began after a fall off a slide onto concrete when I was young and additional falls off of horses and a car accident all started to accumulate.


Kim’s Story

Dr. Steve Herman referred me to see Dr. Johnson for possible benefit of vision therapy. My daughter went through Vision Therapy and it was a huge success. I have vertical heterophoria (vertical misalignment of the eyes). Superior Eye is the ONLY one who knew what that was. Prisms were put into my glasses and I immediately stopped falling. I was sent to Vision Therapy and Dr. Heidi Johnson found my eye muscles and my focusing were weak and my eyes weren’t working together. Therapist Chris took on the challenge! She then challenged me at every appointment!

Michael P

Michael’s Story

“Michael had symptoms for quite some time. He did not understand what was happening to him and considered it part of the aging process. It was during a routine vision exam with Dr. Jessica Jackson that he found out what was happening with his vision and that vision therapy could reduce the symptoms. Michael was diagnosed with Convergence Insufficiency and Vertical Misalignment. Dr. Jackson prescribed a vertical neutralizing prism in his lenses which reduced the vertical double vision so vision therapy would be more successful.”
