ChromaGen

ChromaGen

ChromaGen™ is a unique system of individually prescribed (haploscopic) filters which help individuals suffering from colour vision deficiency or academic skills disorders including Dyslexia. Unlike coloured overlays, each eye is tested separately to give the most efficient combination for both eyes.

The filters can be worn as spectacles or contact lenses and while an up to date eye exam is recommended prior to your assessment, you do not need a prescription to wear ChromaGen™ filters.

ChromaGen™ is the only patented, US FDA-cleared product for the management of reading disorders through the fitting of coloured glasses or contact lenses. Clinical trials and numerous studies have demonstrated the benefits of ChromaGen™

You can only have a ChromaGen™ assessment through a licensed ChromaGen™ practitioner .The assessment using the filters can be carried out on adults and children suffering from all forms of academic skills disorders

ChromaGen for Dyslexia
Dyslexia refers to a number of leaning related problems affecting approximately 16% of the population, with males being more affected than females. It has nothing to do with intelligence, and often Dyslexic children have very high IQ’s but because their reading age is usually lower than their chronological age, their intelligence is often hard to predict.

Approximately one in three sufferers of Dyslexia has the visual form where the information reaching the brain from the eye is ‘scrambled’ making the written word difficult to read or write. It is this form of Dyslexia which can be helped by ChromaGen filters.

ChromaGen can help in the following instances:

  • Academic skills disorder (ASD™)
  • Dyslexia
  • Dyspraxia (lack of co-ordination; clumsiness)
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD)
  • Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
  • Or other related learning difficulties

Or individuals who exhibit one or more of the following signs:

  • Are intelligent but have not reached their full potential at school
  • Avoid reading, writing or mathematics
  • Have difficulty in concentrating
  • Have difficulty in following texts – i.e. skipping lines and words
  • Have difficulty in copying correctly
  • Have been diagnosed with myopia, astigmatism or strabismus, up to 0.75 – yet have experienced little or no improvement in academic studies
  • Have a reputation for being lazy, problematical or immature learners
  • Have little sense of orientation and poor concept of time and space
 

How text would look
to a dyslexic

Before the ChromaGen™ assessment, your practitioner will find a baseline for reading and writing which can be improved upon once the correct filters have been individually selected for right and left eye.

An immediate improvement in accuracy of reading writing and comprehension is often noted with the wearer reporting clearer and easier to read text, which stays still on the page.

ChromaGen for Colour Vision Deficiencies
Colour blindness occurs when there is a deficiency in certain chemicals in the retina at the back of the eye. There are over 3 million people in the UK with some form of colour blindness, and more males than females are affected.

There are huge variations in deficiencies from complete inability to distinguish any colour, to a near normal where typically the chemical for seeing red and green is slightly altered.

ChromaGen™ haploscopic filters work by changing the wavelength of colour going into one or both eyes to enhance colour perception and colour discrimination. They can be worn as spectacles or contact lenses, occasionally only one lens gives a significant enhancing effect and is therefore better worn as an individual contact lens.

The change experienced can be quite dramatic, imagine a world where your colour perception has always been distorted suddenly becomes vibrant and bright, or you see colours you have never seen before. In trials, over 97% of individuals with a colour deficiency reported a significant enhancement to their colour vision.
