Optometris awarded

Dyslexia: News from the web:

 A Holland-area optometrist received national recognition Friday for the progress one of his patients made in optometric vision therapy that allowed him to read easily after years of struggling.

“He really did all the work we told him what to do and he made so much progress,” development optometrist Dr. Neil Renaud said. ”(He) has seen so many hurdles that were in the way for him for reading, like double vision and blurry vision and letters moving on the page, dyslexia, getting lost all the time. He’s enjoying reading now for the first time in his life. … He’s the one who had a life-changing experience that he’s going to carry forever.”

Reading lamp to help dyslectics

Dyslexia: News from the web:

Dyslexia is something of a mystery in that we’re not precisely sure what the cause is and it’s notoriously difficult to diagnose. Some French researchers have suggested that sufferers have two dominant eyes, so images of letters appear correctly but also as a mirror image simultaneously, which can make it hard to read. The Lexilife lamp has been designed with this supposition in mind and it employs powerful LEDs that pulse at an adjustable rate.
