How to find a Visual Stress Practitioner in Hampshire

NB a number of Specialist Teachers and other assessors offer a screening test for Visual stress with coloured overlays, as a stand-alone test or as part of a full diagnostic assessment for Specific Learning Difficulties and you are advised to discuss this before any appointment.

If coloured overlays are prescribed for you, it is recommended that you use them for at least three months and IF THEY ARE STILL MAKING A SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE, consider seeing an optometrist for a test with the Intuitive Colorimeter.
