Vision Specialists of Michigan, Patient Stories

My husband – so many positive changes!!

Hi – I am not a patient of Dr. Debby but my husband is. When I met Jeff 9 years ago, I thought that his habit of holding his head tilted to the side was just that – a habit, and one I thought was sort of adorable in a way. Just 2 years ago, he revealed to me that if he tried to hold his head straight, he would experience double vision! Alarmed, I took him to a top opthalmologist in the area, who discussed surgery and stated that not much could be done – this problem should have been attended to in childhood, not now at age 44.

I should also mention that my husband has for years been thought of as someone with a “short fuse” – easily irritated at seemingly minor things, and also never too comfortable in large crowds or big busy stores. He has been prescribed various anti-depressant and anti-anxiety medications over the years, none with any success. I prayed for an answer to his discomfort, still not connecting these problems with the vision issue. Then one day last fall, I saw an article – the drawing of a person with their head tilted to one side caught my attention, and after reading about Dr. Debby’s work, I immediately made Jeff an appointment.

IT’S A MIRACLE! The one I had been praying for! Jeff no longer tilts his head; he can see clearly for the first time in his life – and he has become a much calmer, more peaceful and happier person. I tried to imagine the constant irritation he must have felt for so long, not being able to focus properly and not knowing that this was the problem. Now that the problem has been corrected with his new glasses, things that used to bother him no longer do. And, he commented to me recently, “people are nicer to me now”. Imagine how others may have been perceiving a man with his head cocked to one side and slightly back – he must have looked as though he had an “attitude problem”!

Thank you, thank you Dr. Debby and staff for the wonderful things you have done for my husband and for me.
