Specially tinted glasses help dyslexia patients read
Published September 04, 2013FoxNews.com
Tinted lenses have once again been reported to help dyslexics read better by reducing such visual symptoms as word movement and seeing the background vs the foreground print. Using expensive ChromoGen lenses helpful for color blindness, Brooklyn Ophthamologist Dr Shamah believes he has helped correct for the differing transmission speeds of images received by the two eyes.
According to Dr Levinson, many dyslexics have been significantly helped by inexpensive sun glasses and tinted plastic overlays for years. Although initially reported by others over the past decade, Levinson believes that dyslexics are helped by tints for other reasons as well. "Tints improve many of the inner-ear and cerebellar visual symptoms impairing reading in dyslexia,"states Dr levinson. " They decrease light sensitivity or photophobia, enhance ocular fixation and tracking by enhancing signal clarity and enable greater signal stability via compensatory cerebellar mechanisms.

About Harold Levinson, M.D.
Formerly Clinical Associate Professor of Psychiatry at New York University Medical Center, Dr. Harold Levinson is currently Director of the Levinson Medical Center for Learning Disabilities in Great Neck, New York. He is a well known neuropsychiatrist, clinical researcher and author. His "highly original" research into the cerebellar-vestibular (inner-ear) origins and treatment of dyslexia and related learning, attention-deficit/hyperactivity and anxiety or phobic disorders has evolved over the past four decades. Levinson's concepts encompass the collective insights derived from the examinations, follow-up and successful treatment of over 35,000 children, adults and even seniors and have led to new methods of screening, diagnosis, treatment and prevention. His expanded theories appear capable of encompassing and/or explaining all reported symptoms as well as most other concepts and experimental data, thus resulting in a truly holistic perspective.
