Why vision therapy – loss of place when reading?

I am Dr. Ronald Gall, an optometrist in Oakville, Ontario where I offer excellence in vision therapy at the Oakville Centre for Vision. At the office, I care and listen to may patients needs, and I am excited when they reach their potential and achieve success.

My approach for excellence in vision therapy was borne out of my love and passion for vision therapy and desire for life long learning, for best patient care. After undergraduate university in science and my 4-year optometry doctorate, I have earned two Fellowships, a Diplomate status and a Master’s in vision therapy.

Check out my You Tube Channel and this video about Why Vision Therapy may help you with losing your place while reading.

Why vision therapy – loss of place when reading?

How often do you lose your place when reading a book or text on a digital screen? Maybe not – you may never lose your place when reading.

However, about 10% (1 in 10) experience loss of place when reading. The frequency may be once per paragraph or a few times per page. Often re-reading is necessary to achieve comprehension of the text. Other adjustments include using a ruler, guide or even a finger to reduce loss of place when reading. Often motion sickness, worse when reading in car, is associated with loss of place when reading along with poor concentration.

Vision therapy may be valuable for those who lose their place when reading;

– it enhances vision and its learning connection for students working twice as hard for their academic success due to loss of place when reading

– it vitalizes vision and performance for adults who lose their place when reading

– it also, rehabilitates the eyes and its neural-control for a specific issues like loss of place when reading secondary to a concussion
