Visual Stress & Colorimetry

We are delighted to launch our new visual stress programme.


Research suggests up to 20% of the population experience discomfort when reading.

How Colour May Help

Many people report visual discomfort when reading. This is often known as Visual Stress or Meares-Irlen syndrome.


Changing the background colour of text has been shown to help and colour can be cleverly used to alleviate symptoms of visual stress.

Colour Assessment

We use the Read EZ software designed at Cardiff Univeristy as a colour assessment tool followed by the Right Eye Visual Tracking, which has a full binocular evaluation and exercise programme afterwards (if required).

With our RightEye software, we are able to diagnose and then determine the optimum background colour required.


We can then supply coloured overlays, reading guides, clip-on lenses, tinted lenses or even an app link that allows the user to tint their computer screen.

All of this is available at affordable prices.


We recommend that children have an eye examination first, which can be included under the NHS. 

  • The cost for Read EZ is £50

  • Right Eye £35

  • Combined £75

The appointment will last 30 minutes.
