Abstract

This series of articles has described various aspects of visual characteristics of reading difficulties and the background behind techniques such as the use of coloured filters in helping to reduce the difficulties that are experienced. The present article, which is the last in series, aims to describe a clinical protocol that can be used by the busy eye care practitioner for the investigation and management of such patients. It also describes the testing techniques that can be used for the various assessments. Warning: DO NOT LOOK AT FIGURE 7 IF YOU HAVE MIGRAINE OR EPILEPSY.
