Eyes and dyslexia

New research from scientists in France has found that people with dyslexia often have an unusual pattern of light detecting cells in their eyes which makes letters difficult to read.  Rather than having a dominant eye, research in a Royal Society Journal states that both eyes in a person with dyslexia battle for dominance, causing confusion with print. The scientists state that “For dyslexic students…their brain has to successively rely on the two slightly different versions of a given visual scene”.

Using coloured overlays and coloured paper can have a noticeable impact for some students on improving the stability and clarity of text and in reducing signs of visual stress, such as headaches and eye strain.  Please contact us for more information.
