COLOUR THERAPY FOR VISUAL STRESS

Colour therapy is designed to reduce the symptoms of visual stress (sometimes referred to as Meares Irlen syndrome or scotopic sensitivity).

 

This condition effects people with otherwise perfectly normal vision at rates of 20% moderately and 5% severely.

 

Symptoms include:

  • rapid tiring

  • headaches or eyestrain

  • movement or blurring of print

  • letters changing shape or size

  • fading or becoming darker

  • patterns appearing and colours appearing through print​​.

COLOUR THERAPY ASSESSMENTS

There are two forms of colour therapy available and it is usual for a patient to begin with coloured overlays and have used them successfully before moving on to the more comprehensive colourimetry. 

 

Before exploring either of these options, patients are required to first have recently completed an eye examination to first rule out more common ocular problems.
