Tinted lenses bring words into living colour. Certain people are very sensitive to colours. Coloured lenses could help up to 50 percent of children and adults affected by glare-induced headaches and reading problems. This machine is used under the direction of our trained optometrist in our Sydney clinic. The machine is used to systematically explore the different colours and find the optimal tint for the relief of perceptual disorders. Children who suffer from an inability to differentiate colour, or who find certain hues and saturations to be distracting may suffer from dyslexia. Coloured lenses are one way to combat this visual perception problem.
The holistic approach to treating dyslexia in Sydney
There are many different symptoms and variations of dyslexia. At EvianEyecare we ensure that you are provided with a variety of treatment options that offer a rounded approach. Dyslexia coloured lenses can help to minimise glare and reduce other colour related factors that may be affecting your child’s ability to read.
Some children who suffered from certain glare triggered headaches every few weeks report headaches only a few times a year after they start wearing tinted lenses. Certain colours reduce glare which interferes with visual processing and visual comfort. Words, numbers and gaps may appear to shimmer and shake on the page.
An American literacy instructor identified this disorder and treatment in 1994.
Today, a Colorimeter is used to determine whether colours will help and what colour tint is suitable. Tinting and intensity adjustments are performed in our centre so glasses are available immediately.
