Eye Tests

A special dyslexic eye test is not a standard eye test for long or shortsightedness, but a test for tracking the dominant eye, problems with which are commonly associated with dyslexia. Coloured filtered overlays can sometimes greatly reduced reading difficulties associated with this problem.

It is advisable to have this eye test at any stage. The following opticians are known to the Redbridge Dyslexia Support Group.
