Visual Stress

Visual stress presents with a sensitivity to patterns, often stripes.

Written text can look this way and so sometimes, even with clear vision normally, reading can cause discomfort and eyestrain.

Some of the symptoms include: moving text, sore eyes, halos around words, tiring whilst reading and migraines.

A full eye test is the first step of the process for someone having trouble with reading. If the optometrist decides further testing would be beneficial, we can then perform a colorimetry assessment which determines a specialised, individual colour depending on the test.

We can then dispense prescription glasses with unique, precision tinted lenses to reduce the symptoms of visual stress.
