Reading Difficulties

Reading Difficulties

Some of our optometrists have a special interest in helping children and adults whose reading, writing and spelling are not as good as may be expected for their age.

Some people will have a visual component to their difficulty; it might be poor binocular co-ordination, poor tracking or Meares Irlen syndrome.

In addition to a full eye examination we will (depending on age and need) add the following:

We request that patients mention at the time of booking their appointment that they would like these extra investigations so the extra time needed can be allotted.

We also request the SpLD questionnaire is completed and returned to the practice in good time before the appointment.
