Many children and adults suffer from visual discomfort when reading. This can affect reading fluency, concentration and comprehension and can cause rapid fatigue. This Visual Stress can cause symptoms such as movement of print, rivers running through the print and headaches/eyestrain.

Visual stress is found to exist in many conditions including:

  • Dyslexia
  • Dyspraxia
  • Photosensitive Migraine
  • Photosensitive Epilepsy
  • Autism
  • ADHD
  • Head Injuries
  • Multiple Sclerosis

Colour has been found to be hugely beneficial in alleviating the symptoms caused by Visual Stress for many years. This has been confirmed by the evidence based research carried out by Clinical Psychologist Professor Arnold Wilkins and the Medical Council, the leading Govenrment funded research body in the UK..

In order to carry out this research Prof. Wilkins developed the Intuitive Colorimeter to prescribe Precision Tinted Lenses. Cerium Visual Technologies were granted the license from the MRC to manufacture and distribute the Intuitive Colorimeter and associated accessories.

CVT works closely with the professional bodies and fully supports further research in order that these products are used worldwide within the Education and Optometry professions to help thousands of individuals with Visual Stress related reading problems and associated medical conditions.

The system is validated by The British Dyslexia Association and The College of Optometrists in the UK, as well as the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) in the USA.

Cerium focuses on the problem and comes up with tangible solutions.
