Visual Dyslexia Assessment

Some children and adults struggle with reading and writing, causing them to lag behind in certain subjects. The condition can be frustrating and distressing as the person is otherwise intelligent and there appears to be no apparent reason for the difficulty. These individuals are regarded as having a specific reading difficulty or suffering from, Visual Stress which is often called dyslexia. Symptoms may include:

  • • Blurred letters or words which go out of focus.
  • • Letters which move or present with back to front appearance or shimmering or shaking.
  • • Headaches from reading.
  • • Words or letters which break into two and appear as double.
  • • Find it easier to read large, widely spaced print, than small and crowded.
  • • Difficulty with tracking across the page.
  • • Upset by glare on the page or oversensitive to bright lights.

Edwards & Walker is now able to provide an assessment to test for Visual Dyslexia – a tailored, visual evaluation based on the patients specific visual difficulties, including tests not normally included as part of a standard eye examination. If you feel you would benefit from this assessment, please contact us in the first instance to register your interest and a member of our team will get right back to you.
