Welcome to Colour2c, based in North Yorkshire. We hope everyone will find our website informative and helpful.
We want to help people, both adults and children, who experience difficulties when reading.
We assess individuals for Visual Stress and can offer treatment in the form of specialised coloured overlays or glasses with precision tinted lenses. We offer this service via registered opticians.
Visual stress is the term now used in the UK for this perception disorder. Previous names used were Scotopic Sensitivity Syndrome, Irlen Syndrome, Visual dyslexia and Meares-Irlen Syndrome.
This is not new; many people struggle to process bright light and glare and have done for centuries. In the west we now we live in an age where paper is bleached, lights are often neon or fluorescent, whiteboards are shiny, computers are back lit and text size is made small and dense to save printing costs –no wonder so many of us struggle!
