Dyslexia Treatment

One in ten of the population suffers from dyslexia. Dyslexia affects people in different ways, some find the writing falling off the page, others experience problems with numbers or reading at speed. Others read so fast that they skip out chunks of text and need to slow down to read more comfortably.


Many children suffer from reading and writing disorders that are not identified until adult life, by which time the damage to their educational development has already taken place.

Fortunately, a very simple assessment is available by Chromogen practitioners, such as Andrew Matheson at our Alresford branch, which can determine if suitable chromogen lenses can be prescribed that may dramatically improve their reading speed and accuracy.

Studies carried out by neuroscientist, John Stein, of Oxford University, found that approximentally one in three people who suffer with dyslexia can benefit from wearing coloured spectacle lenses or contact lenses.

Chromogen is a unique system using a combination of coloured lenses for dyslexia. When the correct colour combination is selected by the patient during the assessment, an immediate improvement can be experienced including clearer text, ease of reading and word and number recognition.

As a result, text typically becomes much easier to read. Chromogen is the only patented, FDA approved, product for the management of reading disorders through the fitting of spectacles or contact lenses. Clinical trials and numerous case studies have demonstrated the benefits of Chromogen.

A study of 400 dyslexic children found that over 90% reported a significant improvement in reading, writing and comprehension levels when wearing Chromogen coloured spectacles or contact lenses.

One of the greatest benefits reported by dyslexia sufferers is a tremendous boost in their self esteem.

There are approximately 100 licenced Chromogen practitioners in the UK, including Andrew Matheson, practising at the Alresford practice.
