Eye-Physio Treatment Eye-Tracking
It has been scientifically proven by research and validated by both the Medical Council and the British Dyslexia Association (BDA) that the use of colour in the form of overlays or better still, with precision tinted lenses in glasses is able to make reading read easier in over 50% of individuals who suffer from Visual Dyslexia (also known as Meares-Irlen Syndrome or Visual Stress). These coloured tinted glasses for are made with the help of the Intuitive Colorimeter and help people with dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties such as dyspraxia and ADHD..
 
 
The Intuitive Colorimeter utilises up to 7,000 different tints varied Hue and Saturation and provides up to 120 000 colour options to measure exactly which colour helps individuals the most.
 
Scientists do not know exactly how or why colour works but the most common theory is that the area in the brain that controls vision (known as the visual cortex) is very sensitive in some people and some text may 'over-excite' the colour neurones resulting in text appearing distorted. It appears that the right prescion tinted coloured lenses, filter out light, helping to correct the problem and also reduce 'pattern glare' which regularly occurs in high contrast situations such as balck text on a white background.
 
Those who appear to benefit most from these lenses are those who find that words and letters tend to; be jumbled up, move around, wobble and appear in the wrong order. Some individuals with dyslexia and/or specific learning difficulties have most of the following symptoms others may only have one or two. Many students – particularly younger children do not always realise it is a problem as they have always seen writing in the same way.
 
Research has shown that if such an person uses coloured overlays their rate of reading can increase by up to 50% in some cases and they can experience fewer headaches too.
 
At Visual Answers Optometrists we provide eye examines for dyslexia that checks eye-tracking. Provide eye-exercises where necessary to improve the workings of both eyes together. We also carry out colour sensitivity testing and rate of reading tests and also provide full screening using the Intuitive Colorimeter

There are several benefits to using colored overlays. They certainly make many people more comfortable and they can read for longer periods of time. Colored overlays relax your eyes, and even your neck and shoulders as you read. They can make the print clear up and reduce visual perceptual problems.
