Spectacles for Dyslexia

Dyslexia spectacles

Specifically prescribed spectacles can help with dyslexia.

We fully understand the challenges that can exist with visual stress and dyslexia. Through his own personal challenges with dyslexia, Principal Optometrist, Noel McCrystal, embarked on a journey of detecting and helping individuals with dyslexia.

Having worked initially with ‘Chromagen’, a patented system of colour treatment, as well as acquiring an ‘Intuitive Colorimeter’ machine to open up all the possibilities of further colour permutations, we still observed a gap in treatment methods. Following further research, Noel completed a Diploma in ‘Schoolvision’, which investigates the muscular anomalies that exist both inside and around the outside of the eyeball, in an accurate process aimed exclusively at stabilising the dominant eye. In adopting this Programme, in conjunction with previous knowledge, the Practice has seen substantial improvements in practically all patients. Most recently, we have introduced ‘Orthoscopics’ into the practice enabling a comprehensive range of offerings to both children and adults with ‘non-muscular’ dyslexia and multisensory problems.
