If my child has reading problems, will colour fix it?

Not all children with reading problems respond to colour. Our job at Young Eyes Optometrists is to ensure all children have a comprehensive eye assessment and proper vision correction and where appropriate further investigation. We will recommend referral to other specialists and allied health professionals where we consider it appropriate. We work closely with ophthalmologists, paediatricians, family doctors, occupational therapists, speech therapists and teachers to ensure all options are covered where learning difficulties have been identified. Colorimetry forms an important therapy in some children. It is important that examination of responses are measured in a clinical setting and responses are real. If your child does not respond to colour we will explore other options available to help your child.
