Visual Stress

Does your child have an eye problem?

This child has a visual problem, but how would you know?

Most children don’t complain of poor vision because they assume what they see is normal.

Would you know if you had a vision problem?

Not only an over 40’s problem and could happen
at any age!

If you are finding reading more difficult then this will affect work and school performance.

Visual Stress

Dyslexia? Vision Problem? Or is it Something Else?

Do you have any of the following symptoms?

  • Find the page too bright when you read
  • Words move on the page
  • Get sore eyes when reading
  • Restlessness while reading
  • Difficulty tracking or copying
  • Need to close your eyes or look away when reading.
  • Find patterns difficult to look at or even make you feel sick

Do you get visually sensitive migraines?

Do you have dyslexia or do you find reading difficult?

You may be suffering with “Visual Stress”, “Visual Discomfort” or Meares-Irlen Syndrome (MIS). These conditions contribute to reading difficulties in children and adults that are not corrected by traditional glasses or reading tuition. Fortunately, researchers have developed Customised Colour Tinted Lenses to assist with symptoms related to Visual Stress and MIS.

Visual Stress or MIS can affect normal readers and dyslexics, and may also occur in migraine sufferers, and patients with whiplash and brain injury.

Because we are dedicated to improving the life quality of our patients by offering genuine alternatives to the standard eye-care options, we have extensive experience in helping patients of all ages improve concentration and reading fluency. One of the ways we can assist is with Customised Colour Tinted Lenses.

What are Customised Colour Tinted Lenses? Are they like Irlen lenses?

Customised Colour Tinted Lenses are coloured lenses. Now you may remember the “rose coloured” glasses or Irlen lenses have been around since the 1980′s. Many claimed them to be a cure for dyslexia and reading difficulty. However, further research has discovered:

  • Coloured lenses do not cure dyslexia, but instead reduce symptoms and can enhance reading fluency in some people.
  • It is recommended that a full functional vision examination is carried out to rule out vision problems that can give the same symptoms, and may instead respond to vision therapy.  Note a full functional vision examination is more than a “sight” test – go to our adults or kids page to find out more.
  • The colours that work will be different depending on whether they are presented as an overlay vs a tint, meaning overlays should not be used to predict the colour used in glasses.

If you are keen to find out whether you can benefit from a Customised Colour Tint, please contact us to arrange your initial evaluation.
