Vision Therapy

     After a long time going to doctors and telling them how do I feel when I read, I have understood the real problem with my eyes. I hope someone can help me out because I need to read again. I could read before. Also, I am attending to College, and it is really a pain on the neck not to be able to read anything. I feel like I am going to fail all my classes.
     As anyone would know, everybody reads moving her eyes from left to right. I can do that. But, the problem comes when I try to slow down my eyes to read slowly and concetrate more on line I am reading. I can stop them. but I cannot slow them down. They move at a speed faster than regular speed when I read something, so it causes me I cannot concentrate on the reading. They really move fast from left to right.
     Does anyone knows what kind of problem I have? I have heard about a program called PVT, Perceptual Visual Tracking Program,http://www.visiontherapysolutions.net/pvt_1.html, but I am not sure that if I should buy it. Also, I have gone to three eye doctors. The last two prescribed me Vision Therapy, specifically for Convergence Insuffiency. But those did not work. They prescribed me glasses, too.
     I am living in MA. I appreciate if anyone can recommend me a good eye doctor who practices VT in the Boston area. Or, if the program I mentioned above is good for my eye condition?
