Vision and Learning
There has been a lot of research carried out on whether reading on a white background with black text can sometimes hinder reading in both adults and children. Many of our patients come to us complaining that when they are reading books the text moves, they get tired reading or they get headaches, eye strains or even migraines.
We find this test benefits children the most, especially in gaining reading confidence. Some children increase their reading speed simply by putting on a specially prescribed coloured overlay and many schools are even able to change the smart board backgrounds to help the children.
