Conditions

Amblyopia

Commonly referred to as a ‘lazy eye’, amblyopia can come in different forms, but is a problem with a lack of development of communication between the eye and the brain.

Brain Injury

Visual skill losses in brain injury, concussions and whiplash can cause problems with reading speed/comprehension, headaches, dizziness, nausea, hand-eye coordination and even light sensitivity.

Strabismus

Also referred to as a ‘lazy/turned eye’ , the eyes do not align with each other. This can happen intermittently, or it may be a more permanent mis-alignment.  Often there is also trouble with how the visual system controls the alignment of the eyes.

Convergence Insufficiency

Making headlines in the C.I.T.T. study, convergence insufficiency can mimic attention deficit disorder.  Rather than a problem with the muscles, convergence insufficiency is a problem with the neurological control of the extra-ocular muscles.

Irlen Lens Syndrome /Colored lenses or overlays:  While coloured lenses can provide some immediate improvement for some readers, studies have shown that once the underlying visual deficits are treated the individual is not only further ahead than where they were with the lens, but that the lenses are no longer necessary.  This has called into question whether or not it is actually a ‘syndrome’.
