Has anyone had VISION THERAPY to help BALANCE when walking??

Yes. There was the vestibular therapy which consisted of walking while looking up, down, diagnal and side to side. It helped some but muscle memory takes over eventually and I just walked because I remembered walking. It also helped to walk a road with a white shoulder line. Last year I saw a Nuero opthamologist who specialized in TBI. He used prism glasses to resync my eyes and brain. When the processed stabilized, I got new Rx glasses. Great for driving. Cant walk in them tho. No cure for opscillopsia. (eyes bounce when feet hit the ground.)

I had something like that with my vestibular therapy. She worked on my vision a lot to help me walk again.
