Visual Stress - Hadleigh, Essex
Visual stress (also known as Meares Irlen syndrome) describes a group of symptoms associated with reading problems.
These may include:
- Movement of words in text
- Blurring of print
- Letters changing shape or size
- Patterns forming in print (described as 'rivers' or 'worms')
- Coloured fringes to letters or words
- Fatigue when reading
As you can imagine, these symptoms make reading a demading and often unpleasant experience, resulting in reluctant readers who tire quickly, misread words and skip/repeat lines when reading.
