Learning difficulties associated with conditions such as Dyslexia & Dyspraxia are often the result of Visual Stress (also known as Visual Dyslexia or Meares-Irlen Syndrome). This affects over 25% of the population. Visual Answers are award-winning Behavioural Optometrists

Visual Stress (also known as “Mears-Irlen” syndrome) and Visual Dyslexia can cause symptoms such as movement of print, rivers running through sentences, concentration problems, headaches & eyestrain.
