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.

  • Advancement in technology has meant that we can carry out a computer formulated Visual Stress Screening.
  • The test is simple
  • We can determine whether you could benefit from a different coloured background when reading.

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. 

We offer a full range of services to meet your eye care needs from a comprehensive eye health examination, contact lens consultations, as well as medical eye care.
