Revolutionary changes in vision therapy with Dr. David Grisham

"The biggest difference is that younger patients clamor to get in the door. They want to come to clinic to have their in house or in office therapy session. Because we use the virtual reality system on most of our cases now because it has so much potential to train so many different visual skills and the kids enjoy it so much. What's neat is that they're actually learning skills in a virtual world, but it is a world - that they have to coordinate their entire body, it's not static like it has been before. "
