From the Back Cover
Who would have thought that a basic eye alignment problem could cause a person to be miserable or disabled? Yet that is exactly what is happening with Vertical Heterophoria (VH), a visual condition where there is a slight vertical image misalignment which causes headaches, dizziness, anxiety, neck pain and reading difficulties. Using techniques developed by Dr. Debby Feinberg and her colleagues, patients are fit with prism eyeglass lenses that realign the images, resulting (on average) in an 80% reduction of symptoms.
This book contains the stories of those suffering from VH, their difficult journey through life and the medical system, and their recovery and return to health using just a simple pair of properly prescribed prism lenses.
“Who, indeed, could have supposed that a mere ocular defect could have given rise to so serious a train of evils
and who that had not seen it, could believe that the correction by glasses of the eye trouble could have given a relief so speedy and so perfect that the patient described it as a miracle?”
