I have always suffered with severe migraines and have had little issues that I assumes to just be quirks of mine, things I had to deal with. I have always walked to the right and without realizing slowly pushed my friends into walls or off sidewalks while walking next to people. Me depth perception was never that great and I usually bumped into things and tripped over my own feet very frequently. Playing as a soccer goalie was very hard because sometimes I would incorrectly estimate where the ball was going. My mom started working at Neurovisual and one night when I was having a severe migraine where I sat in my room with all the lights off, unable to eat, and my eyes feeling pained and strained my mom handed me a fleet from work explaining symptoms of BVD. She read it to me and with my answers filled out the test sheet on the website. At ther hearing about this condition and going for my exam it all started to make sense. When I was 7 my friend and I were making a pillow fort and she used a small 5 pound gym weight to hold down the blankets on top but when I went inside the fort collapsed with me inside and the weight hit me in the face underneath my left eye. As was very thoroughly explained to me by the helpful Dr. Sonnenberg, my eyes did cooperate together anymore since the accident causing my brain to over compensate and my eye muscles to strain. The straining of my eyes led to the other symptoms that I mentioned and I thought were just silly things I dealt with in my everyday life. Following receiving my glasses within a few days my symptoms were noticeable lessening and now after having my glasses for a few moths my symptoms have long disappeared. I can tell my glasses have helped me because on days I am in a rush and forget them at home my symptoms come back and it is hard for me to focus on school and read or take long tests. I would say to anyone who is wondering if this is the path for them it never hurts to take the test and find out because if these glasses can help it will 100% change your life. Thanks to everyone who helped me and to Dr. Sonnenberg and her friendly staff 🙂
After seeing many doctors and being told by ENT that nothing could be done to treat what he thought was an inner ear issue, my family found Dr. Sonneberg. She has been a true blessing to all of us! We have a better understanding of how the eyes affect the brain’s perception and its response (vertigo!). The prism glasses are working and the results were made even more clear at my second visit. Dr. Sonneberg is compassionate and understands the struggle. Her staff (thank you, Dena!) are wonderful and patient. Thank you, all. I appreciate you!!!!
for 14 months every single day , every time I walked I felt like I was walking on a boat . It was the same sensation as if you spent a long time on a boat and when you get off you still feel like you are on it . That is what I felt like every day for over a year . Over the course of 14 months I went to countless of doctor and had countless of test . No one knew what was wrong with me . I went from being a extremely positive happy person to someone who cried everyday , was depressed , hopeless and didn’t want to live . That is until I walked into Dr. Sonnebergs office . When I told her that I felt like I was rocking on a boat when I walked she didn’t look at me like I was crazy , like many doctors I went to before her . She looked me strait in the eyes and told me “Your not Crazy” and began to give me one of the most through eye exams I have ever had . It was confirmed that I had vertical heterophoria and that I did need prism glasses . Once I got my prism glasses for myself the changes were not immediate ,but they did happen ! At first I noticed that I was not tilting my head anymore and then I noticed that my vision became so clear , crisp and bright !! I had no idea I could even see this good . Then I noticed the rocking sensation lessened , This past week has been a major break through because the rocking is just slightly there . I look forward to the weeks to come because I know that I will just keep getting better and better . I am so grateful for Dr. Sonneberg and her entire staff for the work they do . I feel very comfortable talking with her and feel like she real listens to me and genuinely wants to help . If you have vertigo, dizziness, rocking or migraines why not give this office a try , you have nothing to loose .
You have impacted my life exponentially. If you ever have any doubts whether you are making a difference in the world, I assure you… you are. Please tell your family that you are a hero to me and my family. You and your excellent staff are a shining light in a world that is darkened by visual impairment.
Thank you Dr. Sonneberg, Charlene and Dana for your professionalism, patience and dedication. This office is highly recommended!
Best place for eye doctor
Dr. Sonneberg is the best eye doctor I’ve ever seen. I felt my eys straining but every other doctor told me I had 20/20 vision. Dr. Sonneberg identified the problem (astigmatism) and quickly gave me corrective lenses. Thank you Dr. Erin!
If you are looking for a friendly office with the latest equipment and a doctor who will listen to your questions and answer each one. She will provide you with options that will best suit you rather than fill her cash register. The prescription lenses she gave me to try have provided me with better vision than all the eyeglasses I have ever used over the last 60 years. She knows her stuff. Her staff assisted me with clear instructions for easily inserting the lenses which I was able to do in less than 5 minutes.
