People with dyslexia find it difficult to recognize the different sounds that makeup words and relate these to letters. 

Dyslexia isn’t related to a person’s general level of intelligence. Children and adults of all intellectual abilities can be affected by dyslexia.

The exact cause of dyslexia is unknown, but it often appears to run in families.

Dyslexia is a common learning difficulty that can cause problems with reading, writing and spelling.

What are the signs of dyslexia?

Signs of dyslexia usually become apparent when a child starts school and begins to focus more on learning how to read and write.

A person with dyslexia may:

  • read and write very slowly
  • confuse the order of letters in words
  • put letters the wrong way round (such as writing “b” instead of “d”)
  • have poor or inconsistent spelling
  • understand information when told verbally, but have difficulty with information that’s written down
  • find it hard to carry out a sequence of directions
  • struggle with planning and organisation

But people with dyslexia often have good skills in other areas, such as creative thinking and problem-solving.

Step 1 - Booking your Dyslexia Colour Test

Dyslexia Explained

Dyslexia Visual Stress is a condition contributing to reading difficulties, eye strain and headaches when reading in many adults and children.

The condition relates to light sensitivity in disorders such as dyslexia, migraine and epilepsy. It can be responsible for distortions on the printed page.

Distortions include blurring of print, movement of words and letters, fading of print and appearance of patterns in text.

Visual Stress and Dyslexia Symptoms Explained.

Visual stress can co-exist with Dyslexia. If visual stress is diagnosed then other learning difficulties are easier to cope with. Many people who do not have dyslexia do have visual stress and can benefit from colour treatment. Visual stress can co-exist with Dyslexia.

Classic symptoms are:

  • Words moving on the page.
  • When I read I get a headache.
  • The page is very bright and I cannot see the words properly.
  • Reading hurts my eyes.

Research has shown that an individual colour, worn as Precision tinted lenses, will relieve the symptoms of visual stress and allow more fluent, efficient and comfortable reading.

Visual stress is due to the hyper excitability of the neurons in the visual cortex which fire inappropriately.

 Research has shown that the neurons in the visual cortex are colour sensitive, and by placing a colour in front of the eye changes the pattern of excitation in the cortical network to avoid hyper excitability thereby reducing visual disturbances. The same theory is also used in the treatment for migraine sufferers.

 Colour treatment can help to prevent the frequency and severity of migraines.

Full eye care for visual stress screening

Dyslexia Colour Test - Cost & Pricing

The cost of a Dyslexia Colour Test is £275.00 on top of the routine eye test fee. If the patient is eligible for a free eye test under the NHS regulations, then the total to pay for the VST is only £275.00. For further details please contact a member of staff either on

We can use a colorimeter to find the optimal precision tint to relieve perceptual distortion if you have dyslexia, migraines or photosensitive epilepsy.

An 80 minute appointment (and includes a visual assessment) during which we should be able to determine your exact tint from over 100,000 possible combinations.

Frequently Asked Questions about Dyslexia Colour Tests

 

What is dyslexia?

Dyslexia is a reading impairment that can result from an abnormal developmental process.

While dyslexia has its core in a disruption of language processing, some believe that it may be a visual disturbance.

Some dyslexics complain that small letters appear to blur and move around when they’re trying to read, leading to research being done in the field of optometry to see if there is a visual component to dyslexia.

What causes Dyslexia?

Most specialists consider dyslexia to be a hereditary, genetic condition. Dyslexia often runs in families. The causes have not been fully established at the moment.
However, dyslexia can be caused by other ways i.e., stroke, serious head injury etc.

What are the Indicators of Dyslexia?

People with dyslexia usually have phonological difficulties (i.e., find it difficult to sort out sounds within words, this means they have problems with reading, writing, spelling, number work, short-term memory, hand control and visual processing.

 Timekeeping, sense of direction and interpersonal skills can also be affected
