Visual Stress

Many people with dyslexia, reading difficulties, migraine and photosensitive epilepsy are affected by distortion and movement when looking at text. There is evidence that for many of these people specific precision tinted lenses can significantly relieve the symptoms of perceptual distortion, eye strain, headaches and may significantly reduce the incidence of migraine and photosensitive epilepsy. As a result, the overall performance in reading and general life can be greatly enhanced.

The individuals most likely to benefit from coloured lenses will often show the following symptoms:

  • Headaches during or after reading
  • Rubbing eyes
  • Watering or red eyes
  • A marked dislike of bright light (photophobia)
  • A tendency to continually shift or alter the position of text while reading
  • Complains of fatigue after short periods of close work (one or two pages)
  • Print appears to be blurred, moving, flickering or fading.
