Did you know that vision and sight are two different things? You may be hearing all sorts of things, and we certainly understand that with all of the information out there it’s hard to decipher between what is true and what isn’t. We thought that we would help you clear it up today, by simply defining the difference between sight and vision, so that you can truly understand why dyslexia is in fact a vision problem.
The Difference Between Vision and Sight
Those that get eye exams on a regular basis have probably heard something like this; “You check out with 20/20 vision!” You feel good about it, but is that really a true statement? Regardless of what those numbers are, the numbers are about your sight, not about your vision. How do we know that?
Each eye has its own parallel processing system, and in order to get that rating, both systems must be balanced and work together to help you read. When these systems are not balanced, the symptoms of dyslexia appear including:
- Blurring of words
- Fatigue and more
So, how do we resolve the symptoms of dyslexia? Thanks to ChromaGen Vision, we now have color-filtered lenses that can be put into glasses to aid those with dyslexia or reading problems. The research has been done and speaks for itself, showing that more than half of the individuals that have used color-filtering technology have been able to benefit from these color-filtered lenses.
How Do Color-Filtered Lenses Help Improve Vision for Those with Dyslexia?
The research for color-filtered lenses has shown that these lenses improve the visual processing system. The end result is that those using these lenses are able to read better, and therefore are able to comprehend the material in front of them. Imagine what life is like for those that can’t read without total distraction because letters appear to be moving around on a page, causing severe headaches, fatigue, and even nausea.
This is why the color-filtering technology was developed, and as a result so many are now able to read better. Many have now tried our lenses and have been able to enjoy reading, whereas prior to using, they would avoid reading altogether. Reading is critical for your child to get a good education, so it’s time to get the assessment complete so that you can determine if our ChromaGen lenses are right for your child!
