It has been proven that the use of simple coloured overlays can, in many cases relieve the symptoms of visual stress, allowing the sufferer to read and write comfortably and more easily. These sheets are made of thin, transparent plastic and are tinted in a variety of colours.
Different individuals respond better to different colours, so during your assessment at Alexander Opticians you will have the opportunity to test several different overlays in order to determine which is the best colour and shade for you.
If one of the colours proves particularly beneficial, you will be able to take away the appropriate coloured overlay with you to use in your everyday life – over printed text in a book or magazine, or even in front of a computer screen. You could also have a pair of specs made up including lenses tinted in the colour of your overlay for an even better visual experience.
