March 30–As of tonight, Governor Hogan is enacting a stay-at-home order for Marylanders. All of our appointments are now virtual, and we have a special offer on Virtual VT to help out during this challenging time. Keep the kids busy, keep yourself busy, and keep our vision therapists from dying from boredom!
March 25–Well, it looks like we are stuck in the virtual world for a bit. MCPS has extended the school closures through April 24, so it looks like at least another month of social distancing is in order.
It has definitely been an adjustment– our kids are gradually getting adjusted to doing school through Zoom and Google classroom. Piano lessons and gym workouts have gone online as well.
“I have found that receiving virtual therapy sessions have kept us motivated and invested in a successful outcome.” -Lisa F.
Now that we are on digital devices more than ever, it’s critical to get a handle on visual symptoms. Fortunately, at VCDC we have been providing Virtual VT for over two years to our more remote patients– as far away as Kazakhstan! Since we are all at home, it’s a great opportunity to maintain momentum in vision therapy, as well as make progress on new skills.
If there’s anything we can do to help you, please let us know. We are here for you.
Wishing you the best in health,
“I have found the virtual sessions with our therapist to be extremely valuable in keeping us on track with our exercises and progress. The virtual platform enables us to maintain a connection with our therapist when face-to-face sessions are impossible. Our therapist is able to deliver a professional atmosphere which very closely simulates an office visit. The power of seeing someone when you are interacting with them is what makes having a virtual session a richer, more personable experience than a talking on a phone. The visual component is very important when demonstrating techniques which are difficult to explain with words only. I have found that receiving virtual therapy sessions have kept us motivated and invested in a successful outcome.” -Lisa F.
