Dyslexia & Visual Stress Help  - Help with Dyslexia from Visual Answers Opticians Loughborough
Learning difficulties associated with conditions such as Dyslexia & Dyspraxia are often the result of Visual Stress.
Visual Stress (also known as “Mears-Irlen” syndrome) and Visual Dyslexia can cause symptoms such as movement of print, rivers running through sentences, concentration problems, headaches & eyestrain.
Colour has been found to be hugely beneficial in alleviating the symptoms caused by Visual Stress for many years. This has been confirmed by the evidence based research carried out by the Medical Council, the leading Government funded research body in the UK.
Visual Stress and Visual Dyslexia has been found to in exist in cases of:
  • Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, AD(H)D & Autistic Spectral Disorders (ASD). 
  • Photosensitive Migraine.
  • Photosensitive Epilepsy
  • Head Injuries
