Green lenses helps Dyslexic Kara Tointon of Strictly come dancing to overcome visual difficulties with words

Following the  recent  BBC programme  ‘Don’t call me Stupid’ featuring the actress and Strictly Come Dancing winner Kara Tointon,  who  suffers from visula Dyslexia, was prescribed green coloured lenses to help her with reading.The programme  also highlighted the issues around  our formal education system.Kara says ‘I know that the normal school way of learning didn’t work for me.’ She dreams about reading a novel from cover to cover.In the intimate documentary, Kara is tested and undergoes specialist help,meets other young dyslexics and we see  the transformation following the diagnosis of her visual problem . Here  at LTS  we have seen this transformation many times with comments from parents and individuals such as ‘It feels like a miracle ‘ and ‘The difference is quite astonishing’.This aspect of dyslexia is  easily remedied with our  diagnosis which takes around one hour,  (the Irlen method), and can effectively  improve the rate  and comfort of reading. From our own  records, we know that coloured lenses can also hep with spelling, balance problems and fine motor coordination. For further research  articles on Irlen, go to .
