Dyslexia in Children

At Clarke Opticians we are able to test those who have visual dyslexia - problems with reading from conventional printed pages. We have a great deal of understanding to this issue.

The first stage is to test to see if the eyes are working properly together. Next, changing the colour of the background to text may help. The dyslexic can then use coloured overlays when reading. If these help greatly, we can prescribe precision tinted spectacle lenses to wear using our new intuitive colorimeter.

Not all dyslexics suffer from 'visual stress', and sometimes non-dyslexics may benefit from coloured overlays or tints.
