"I had another great day seeing a gentleman who has Parkinson's Disease and is having difficulty with visual processing and a convergence insufficiency.  By adding prism to his glasses for reading, it should improve his ability to read for sustained periods.  I also prescribed him exercises to assist with getting his eyes working together.  He and his wife were grateful for the extra time spent to help him with his vision.  He is a vet, and I have the pleasure of seeing Veterans while working at the VA but it is wonderful to support him at the Lighthouse of Houston."
