A person’s #MentalHealth is extremely important as it affects the way we think, act and feel.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and anxiety are both mental health conditions that could co-exist with #VisualStress.

Studies have shown the effectiveness of individually prescribed coloured filter lenses in relieving visual perceptual symptoms related to an acquired brain injury, PTSD and anxiety.

Is your child having difficulties at school? This could be related to vision problems such as #VisualStress.

Visit this website to learn more about signs and symptoms: http://ow.ly/bUlM50Gk76C

Children don't always realize that they are having vision problems, afterall their vision is the only vision they have ever known. It’s important to be on the watch for signs that suggest your child may be struggling to see. Some of the more common signs include:

Children's Vision Month | The Canadian Association of Optometrists

October 🍂 is Children’s Vision Month in Canada!

Visual abilities play a big role in early development. The Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends that infants should have their first 👀 exam between six and nine months of age. Children should then have at least one eye exam just before starting daycare, and yearly after starting school.

Find out more at the Canadian Association of Optometrists: http://ow.ly/cyxj50Gk5Xx

Children's Vision October is Children’s Vision Month, which optometric associations across Canada dedicate to raising awareness of the impact undiagnosed vision problems can have on a child’s learning and development. So much of classroom learning is visual. Students not seeing well, are not per...

Carrie Ann Inaba Is Exiting ‘The Talk’ After Taking a Leave of Absence to Focus on Health

This year, Carrie Ann Inaba took time off from her show, The Talk, due to chronic health conditions.

One of her diagnosed conditions is Irlen syndrome (Visual Stress), a perceptual processing disorder that impacts the brain’s ability to process visual information.

To remedy this, she got a pair of tinted #glasses that helps the brain process visual information more easily.

http://ow.ly/Xg6450G2CL2

Inaba left the show in April to spend time managing her chronic conditions.

Children who struggle to read 📘don’t know why they are struggling; they just know that reading seems to be harder for them than it is for their classmates.

When reading, they may lose their place, find letters get jumbled, and misread words. These are some of the symptoms of #VisualStress.

In general, children with visual stress do not perceive reading material as clearly or calmly as others. It becomes a lot of work for them to read and understand what they are reading.

Did these images trigger some discomfort for you? For some people, these images can lead to physical discomfort and visual perceptual difficulties.

Triggers include lights, glare, patterns, contrast and colours.

Research 📚suggests that because the wavelength of light is known to affect neuronal sensitivity, the use of colour could reduce over-excitation, redistributing cortical hyperexcitability and thus reducing perceptual distortion and headaches.

Do you wear #glasses? Do you still have vision problems even though you have updated your prescription? The problem may not be with your eyes, it may be with your brain.

Intermittent blurriness can come from the perceptual distortions common in #VisualStress.

The solution may be precision tinted lenses. They can help clear up the distortions and improve clarity so you can enjoy the beauty of nature.

The benefits of human neurodiversity - a strength not a disorder.
At Opticalm we too see children just like the one in this story. Their reading, attention, or behaviour issues are thought to be from other causes and visual stress hasn't even been investigated. It is wonderful when we can help provide solutions.
Hi. I just want to let you know that your website (www.opticalm.ca) does not load. We've tried different computers and networks and have the same issue. FYI.
Congratulations to the speakers, panel and organizers of the March for Concussions held this past Saturday. There was an overwhelming response by attendees and sponsors who raised funds for the important work of the uOttawa Brain and Mind Research Institute. Although not in the picture (I was too preoccupied to take one myself) Opticalm was there as a sponsor with a table where I met many happy past clients and potential future clients. So many more people that we can help with a greater understanding of their post-concussion symptom triggers and what they can do to reduce them.
Sarah and I are looking forward to the Fall Fundraiser tonight! Tickets are still available for this excellent community event - so come out and show your support.
