A stroke left her with dizziness, balance problems, difficulty reading and more. Nobody was able to help, until she found vision therapy.

    I am 75 years old and suffered a cerebral stroke.  My symptoms were dizzy spells, loss of depth perception, seasickness, inability to read and comprehend, balance problems and navigating stairs was frightening.

    Before the stroke I loved to walk, read, go boating and do aquafit.  After the stroke these activities became a huge problem.

    I related all of these symptoms to my GP, an ENT specialist, an Optometrist, and an Ophthalmologist.  A CT scan of my head showed exactly what the problem was but nobody was able to help me.

    I finally sought help from a Physiotherapist, specializing in vestibular ( dizziness ) problems.  He was able to refer me to Dr. McCrodan (neuro optometrist) at Optomization, and my life took on a whole positive change.

     During my first assessment with Dr. McCrodan, he listened and I felt I was heard.  He said he could help me. I had my first glimmer of hope!

    From the very beginning of this healing journey, I have been treated with kindness, dignity and respect, not only from Dr. McCrodan but his entire team of professional, empathetic, encouraging and caring staff.

     Dr McCrodan has a passion for what he does and to say he gave me back my life and joy in retirement years would be an understatement.  For that I am truly grateful.
