Colorimetry Specialists in Norwich
Do words blur or move around the page when you read, or do you skip words and lines when reading? You may be experiencing Visual Stress (Mearles Irlen Syndrome). Visit Clarity Colorimetry Specialists in Norwich for your Colorimetry Assessment.
Coloured lenses or overlays can help reduce the problem of Visual Stress. They often improve reading and writing skills and can help when using a computer or when studying.
Many children and adults suffer from visual discomfort and perceptual distortions when reading. This can affect reading fluency, concentration and comprehension, and can cause rapid fatigue.
‘The condition is estimated to affect approximately 30% of poor readers and 10% of the general population to a significant degree.’
Symptoms of Visual Stress
- Glare from the page
- Headaches when reading
- Eyestrain and tiredness when reading
- Movement or blurring of print on the page
Significant improvements in reading speed and accuracy are often reported when an optimum coloured plastic overlay is selected from a range of colours, and placed over the printed page.
An examination with the colorimeter enables the effects of colour, saturation and brightness to be explored systematically and efficiently whilst the eyes are colour adapted. The shades available enable the tint to be precisely tailored to the individual’s needs. Any requirement for a refractive prescription (long or short sight etc) can be included in the final precision tint prescription. Precision tinted lenses are more convenient when wring, using computers and copying from the board. Overlays cannot be used for these activities.
Clarity Colorimetry Specialists in Norwich provide Overlay Assessments and Colorimetry Assessments to identify which solution could help you. Find us at our new studio in Hethersett or one day a week at the Indigo Centre.
