Do You Ever Read Something and Forget What You Just Read?

What About Accidentally Skipped Over a Line of Text?

Imagine if you could change that in just 10 minutes a day…

Take  the FREE Eye-Q Reading Inventory after reading this article to determine whether you suffer from undue visual stress, or need to tweak a few of your visual skills.

Did you know that…

Over 65% of America’s 4th & 8th & 12th graders are not reading at grade level! And a lot of that translates into adults having a more difficult time reading too.

  • What is #1 Reading Problem in America and how does it affect all readers?

Why?

Photograph of Luci Johnson NugentWhen President Lyndon Johnson was in office, his daughter, Luci Johnson, suffered from poor grades and learning difficulties due to learning related vision problems. Her story shows us that anyone, regardless of status or income, may struggle with visual or perceptual dysfunction.
Full Story…   and be sure to take the FREE Eye-Q Reading Inventory at the bottom of the page to find out what is really creating you or your child’s or student’s reading struggles

Most people who have any difficulty reading, lack the basic visual skills that are the building blocks of reading excellence.

People from families in all walks of life are affected.

Even the daughter of a former President nearly dropped out of school because she suffered from undetected, learning-related vision problems.

And it’s not your fault!

Make sure to have your eyesight and visual/perceptual skills checked by a developmental optometrist in your area. Visit covd.org or oepf.org for more information and to find out what is happening when you read or whether you need a visual tune up to make reading stress-free.

The items in this vision therapy program are created by Developmental Optometrists and we recommend consulting your developmental optometrist before using them. They are intended for home use only.

The Number 1 Reading Problem in America

Undeveloped or Underdeveloped Visual Skills. People today aren’t doing the same things many of us did as kids, and as a result, some of the visual skills we need to be great readers are missing.

Also, schools are not testing kids to find out whether they have the visual skills needed to read what is required. The 20/20 eye chart only tells if you can read a certain size letter from 20 feet away.

And no one reads their book from 20 feet away, so this eye chart is not of much use.

Remember when you were a kid? How did you spend most of your free time?

You played outdoors, right? You rode your bike, climbed trees, built forts, played catch, drew and followed maps, and made up lots of new outdoor games. Indoors, you played board games, wrote letters, made up card games, played jacks and built things with tinker toys.

You didn’t know it then, but all those things gave you the skills you needed to be able to read.

You learned:

  • How to track a moving object (then you could move your eyes from line to line easily when you read)
  • Eye-hand coordination (copying from the board to the paper)
  • To develop peripheral vision (allowed you to see more words at once and read faster)
  • Learned to tell right from left, b’s from d’s, p’s from q’s (laterality and directionality in reading terms)

Today – guess where most of us are?

Indoors – and what are they doing? You guessed it, looking at screens. We are watching T.V., spending countless hours on the computer, using apps or even playing video games.

While these are not bad things in themselves, they don’t develop the visual skills you need to become a fantastic reader.

What can help are some vision therapy exercises, because visual skills are learned along with everything else.

20/20 Eyesight Is Not Good Enough!

Answer these questions AND be sure to take the FREE Eye-Q Reading Inventory at the bottom of the page to find out what is really creating visual stress or certain type of reading errors. 

Do you or your lose your place on the page?

Do you ever skip lines?

Do you reverse letters or words when reading out loud?

Do you you ever complain that reading is just too much – or say you don’t like to read?

Has anyone ever said you are lazy when you’re learning new things, or mentioned that you’re inattentive or have ADHD? (These things can actually be a visual stress problem in disguise).

Do you know you are bright but feel it’s not easy to read for long periods of time? Or do you get lower scores than you’d like on an exam?

Do you often get distracted when you read?

Do you ever skip over punctuation as if it isn’t there?

Do you have 20/20 eyesight and still feel like you read too slowly or experience reading problems?

Do you re-read things that you just read?

Do you know the word on one page but not the next?

These are just some of things that the Eye-Q Reading Inventory will ask you about and then you can determine if you want to go to the next step.

If You Discover Any Visual or Perceptual Problems from the Eye-Q Reading Inventory They Can Be Easily Corrected 

Vision is a learned skill, like walking or talking. Most of us are born with eyesight but need to learn to use our eyes together as a team for good vision. If you checked any of the boxes above reading problems are the result of untrained visual skills which vision therapy exercises can help.

If you have any untrained visual skill areas it often results in low reading comprehension levels or visual stress and even behavioral problems due to the high frustration levels.

Early on, people may have told you you’re not trying “hard enough” or “not concentrating”, when in fact, your visual system was unprepared for the daily vision activities you needed to make reading faster and easier.

You don’t need to suffer needlessly and you don’t have to be embarrassed because of reading skills that aren’t as solid as you’d like.

Children and adults must have both good eyesight and good visual skills to be excellent readers.

However, “eyesight” and “vision” are not the same.

Eyesight is the ability to see (acuity) and the eye’s responses to the light coming into it.

Vision is the ability to make meaning of what you see, and interpret the information coming through the eyes.

Many people score 20/20 eyesight on the Snellen Test (basic eye chart). But, they still have poor visual skills that interfere with the ability to read, copy from book to paper, copy from the chalkboard or write in a straight line (not uphill or downhill).

20/20 eyesight refers to the fact that a letter 3/8 inches high can be seen from 20 feet away. It does not give information about the skills needed for the act of reading at a distance of about 16 inches from the printed page.

A 200/20 eyesight score does not let you know which types of reading errors a person may be making or why. Also, many standard eye exams are performed in minutes and some people even try to memorize the chart. This chart won’t give you a true picture of what really happens when you reads all day long.

Since most people do not know that others may see the printed page differently than they do, they may simply feel that they are “not as smart” and nothing could be further from the truth.

In order to determine the real reason reading may be a challenge, it is important to see a a developmental optometrist before beginning any vision therapy activity program.

A Developmental Optometrist is specially trained to give a comprehensive eye exam, that relates to both eye health and visual/perceptual/motor and other skills you need to learn, read, and even play sports.

You can find one of these specially trained doctors at covd.org or at oepf.org.

If you discover that you can benefit from a course of vision therapy, talk to your developmental optometrist eye doctor and find out whether practicing some of the vision exercises in this kit at home can be useful between your vision therapy sessions. The kit is not designed to replace vision therapy – just to give you a jump start on your success.

Many eye problems are complex, and only your doctor has the specialized training and equipment in the doctor’s office to help you succeed. Once you have the initial exam, many doctors recommend vision therapy or a combination of vision therapy and the vision exercises in the I Read I Succeed ™ Kit. In fact, many people, including adults, parents and teachers have found that they can turn reading problems around with this home vision therapy kit:

Listen to why others are raving about the I Read I Succeed Kit for Excellent Reading

“As a person who works in the technology field at a global tech company, I used the exercises in this kit to help me reduce visual stress and read faster and more effectively. It definitely made a difference in my job productivity. Thank you!

C. Sanichar, Canada

“Vision therapy made all the difference in my reading abilities and it put me in a position to achieve my dream of becoming a psychologist much more easily.”

K. Langley, CA

“My son was struggling with reading. He would lose his place and made lots of reversals in both reading and writing. After reading about perceptual problems and vision therapy, I had my son’s vision tested by a developmental optometrist. The doctor said his binocular vision (ability to use both eyes together as a team) was at 20% efficiency. I showed the doctor Pat Wyman’s Eye-Q Reading Inventory and the I Read I Succeed kit. He said it would help to also use these activities at home. In less than 8 weeks, working only about 10-15 minutes a day, my son’s binocular vision re-tested at 80% efficiency! His reading improved dramatically and so did his writing!”

—Kathy Smith, Delton, Michigan

“I Read I Succeed is highly practical and necessary. This material regarding vision screening and reading should be required in teacher preparation courses and given to every parent when they enroll their child in school. Thanks Pat, for promoting such a worthy cause!”

—Donna Morales, Fremont, California

“Thank you for this wonderful, informative resource with your Eye-Q Reading Inventory and information on vision therapy. You’ve been so generous with your time, speaking with me on the telephone, and building my confidence as a teacher so I can help more students be successful in reading.

With your help, and the practical information on your website, I’ve been able to tell parents that other children have improved their reading abilities with vision therapy. Then, I can also easily provide them the list of COVD doctors and other developmental optometrists in their area since you also put the COVD and OEP website on your webpage. I know this information will help so many children to succeed in reading.”

—Darlene Lerch, Learning Disabilities Teacher,
Chesterfield, VA County Public Schools

“Pat Wyman’s program is excellent and I can use it to help my students immediately. I’ve looked and looked for this information and Pat was not only the one teacher knowledgeable in the area of vision therapy and learning, but also the best! Her ideas are practical, organized, and easy to use!”

Laura Tinney, RSP Teacher

“Vision problems are very hidden in the children’s world. Our granddaughter had vision therapy after being diagnosed with convergence insufficiency and she is doing well  and we see her doing things she didn’t even try before. Teachers and parents need to be educated on this vision problem.

Anybody working with children or adults should be aware of the types of things that can create vision problem. Kids and adults get labeled wrongly because of the lack of education of their parents or teachers. Larry Fritzgerald, receiver with the Arizona Cardinals is a big promoter of vision therapy.

He had therapy as an elementary student and contributes the therapy to his athletic successes. He, too, was not doing well in school and vision therapy made a difference.”

Susan and Steven A., Hastings, MN

P.S. I Read I Succeed Life-time Guarantee Over the past 25 years, I’ve personally helped thousands of adults and children with undetected vision problems.

In fact, when my own daughter was asked to repeat the first grade due to reading problems and I did not know why, I discovered that her visual skills were very weak and that she had trouble tracking from line to line.

Once she finished her vision therapy, she could read above her grade level, and today, she fulfilled her life-long dream of becoming a medical doctor.  She is a neonatologist helping save the lives of sick infants.

For well over 20 years, from the time vision therapy changed her life, I became a “mother on a mission” to help every person child read at or above grade level and discover vision therapy.

I collaborated with several developmental optometrists and put together the I Read… I Succeed® kit.

The exercises in this vision therapy kit have shown many people exactly how to strengthen their vision skills and taught them to enjoy reading.

The I Read I Succeed guarantee is this: After going to a developmental optometrist and using this program, (with their permission as homework activities) I expect that you will see a dramatic improvement in reading ability.

If you do as your developmental optometrist recommends, and it includes using the I Read I Succeed Kit, giving this program a fair and honest try for 12-15 weeks, if you do not see improvement, call me and I will write you a refund check on the spot.

I Read… I Succeed® can improve the life of every person who has difficulty reading due to under-developed vision skills. In the process, you or your student will become happier, learn more confidently, and you can expect a calmer home life when using the exercises in vision therapy.
