Visual Dyslexia

People with specific learning difficulties have problems with certain areas of academic achievement, yet often are generally intelligent and do well in other subjects. Literacy difficulties can lead to underachievement with loss of confidence and self-esteem, preventing individuals from reaching their true potential.

Visual stress can effect other conditions.

  • Dyspraxia
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (also known as ME)
  • Autism 
  • Mirgraine
  • Photosensitive Epliepsy
  • Attention deficit hyperativity disorder (also know as ADAD)
  • Stroke Patients
  • Parkingson's

As with dyslexia treating the symptoms of visual stress can make it easier to identify and manage the underling conditions.

Following the assessment, a diagnosis and report will be prepared and a course of action recommended. It is important that strengths and weaknesses are identified and there is appropriate early intervention.

Every child or adult who displays problems with reading should have a full eye examination. A refractive prescription may be required to correct long or shirt sight. Eye exercises are sometimes required. Following an overlay assessment we may recommend the use of an overlay for a few weeks and if results are beneficial we will recommend colorimetry.

This may result in the prescribing of spectacles with coloured lenses which are more specific to the individual's needs., much more precise than the overlay and Coloured lenses are also much more convenient than overlays for board and computer work and writing.
