Vision and dyslexia

At Visual Answers Opticians in Loughborough, we are one only a handful of eye care practices in the UK that specialise in the assessment of visual processing in children & adults. Specialist assessments are recommended for children with learning difficulties associated with conditions such as Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, AD(H)D and other Autistic Spectral Disorders.

We carry out normal NHS eye tests for children & specialist eye examinations, assessing binocular stability, rate of reading tests, coloured overlay testing & intuitive colorimetry that have resulted in great improvements for may children and adults.

Our approach is validated by:

British Dyslexia Association

College of Optometrists

Federal Drug Administration (USA)

Society of Coloured Lens Prescribers

We have over 10 years of experience in this field working with students with learning difficulties from Loughborough University & other institutions.

We regularly work with Schools SENCO's, Colleges and Educational Psychologists.
