Debbie Buchanan was skeptical – at first. After years of coping with the debilitating symptoms of traumatic brain injury, she wondered whether the Mind-Eye Institute in Northbrook, Ill. might be “just another thing that won’t work.”

But her skepticism became hope, and her hope turned to belief when she began wearing the special eye glasses prescribed her by the Mind-Eye team.

“I call them my ‘brain’ glasses,” says Debbie, a former competitive hockey player, who was also an elementary school teacher and flight attendant before her brain-related symptoms worsened. “I put them on as soon as they arrived, and, for the first time in I don’t know how many years, my body finally relaxed a bit. [Those glasses] were life-changing – just getting relief from some of my symptoms and knowing I was on the right path [to recovery].”

My daughter who is 15 years old and autistic is about to get these type of eye glasses. Which is what brought me in search of videos of others wearing them and their experiences. I'm really hopeful and excited to see what difference they make in her life.
