Everything you need to know about dyslexia / visual stress

IN THESE TOGGLES YOU WILL FIND THE DETAILS YOU ARE LOOKING FOR

Children with visual stress may experience one or several of the following:

  • Blurred letters or words which go out of focus.
  • Letters which move or present with back to front appearance or shimmering or shaking.
  • Headaches from reading.
  • Words or letters which break into two and appear as double.
  • Find it easier to read large, widely spaced print, than small and crowded.
  • Difficulty with tracking across the page.
  • Upset by glare on the page or over sensitive to bright lights.

In some cases, any of these symptoms can significantly affect reading ability. It can also make reading very tiring. Of course, a child will not necessarily recognise what they see as a problem, as this is how they always see text.

If a child complains of a least one of these problems or has difficulty at school, they should seek expert advice. Eye Clinic London has a team of optometrist or orthoptist with expertise in this particular field.

The use of cream or pastel-coloured backgrounds can mitigate this difficulty as can coloured filters either as an overlay or as tinted reading glasses.

Children with reading difficulties sometimes have a weakness in eye co-ordination or focussing, and a specialist practitioner might recommend treating this with eye exercises or glasses. If these problems are present, they should be detected and treated before coloured filters are prescribed.

The choice of colour of text on white backgrounds can also affect clarity, e.g. using red on a whiteboard can render the text almost invisible for some dyslexic students.

Samer Hamada and Eye Clinic London enable Londoners to experience relief from their eye problems so they can focus on what matters most.

“I came all the way from the US to be evaluated by Mr. Samer Hamada who provided me with a world class experience. I was treated with technology that doesn’t exist in the United States. My vision improved significantly since the surgery. Mr. Samer Hamada is definitely a Keratoconus expert.”

Timothy Thompson

“Mr Hamada’s Eye Clinic London and his team are a delight. Nothing was too much trouble and the help, support, advice and guidance before during and after the surgery was all world class. I have worn glasses since the age of 13 years and had the onset of cataracts for the last five so it has all been very much a life changing experience to be free from glasses once more.”
