Coloured Overlays - Visual Stress
People of all ages, including children, can suffer from visual stress.
In sufferers you may find that all or some of the following may be present:
- Movement of printed text
- Blurring of print
- Letters changing size or shape
- Patterns in the print
- Halos of colour surrounding letters or words
- Tiring easily whilst reading
- Headaches or visual discomfort
- Red, sore, watery eyes.
Visual stress can be reduced by the use of coloured filters. A coloured overlay can be placed over text or coloured spectacle lenses can be worn.
At Thomas & Mackay your optometrist will examine your eyes then assess the benefits of using colour for your problems. Coloured overlays or spectacle lenses can then be prescribed to help.
