An article in the British newspaper, The Journal, talks about a middle school student who is coping with dyslexia thanks to a new pair of glasses.

Rose-tinted glasses help to reduce visual stress and stop the feeling that words and musical notes were “moving fast off the page.”

According to the eye doctor who fitted her with these special lenses, they chose a color not to make a fashion statement, but because rose was the best tint for her.  The glasses are intended to block out distortion and make images clearer and sharper.

According to optometrist Andrew Keyes, of Gosforth, UK: “Visual stress is a visual perception problem which makes it difficult to see clearly.  The contrast between printed words on a white surface can make letters appear jumbled or blurred.”
