Visual Stress

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

With this sensitivity to patterns, you may find that reading can cause discomfort and eyestrain. You may also find that black and white pages of text are harder to read as the text appears to move. Other symptoms include 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 further testing would be beneficial, we can then perform a colorimetry assessment which determines a specialised, individual colour for you.

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