Colorimetry is the science of measuring colour using an objective numerical approach rather than subjective responses. It has a significant impact on colour creation, rendition, and perception in all domains. The nature of the illumination, the optical qualities of the object itself, and the human eye's response all influence how we see the colour of an object.
Discover how coloured overlays can improve reading speed and accuracy for people who struggle to read.
A colorimeter is made up of a light source, fixed-geometry viewing optics, three photocells that are calibrated to a globally recognised Standard Observer, and an on-board processor or a cable connection to a processor/display unit or computer.
Learn how colour can aid with dyslexia and ease visual discomfort.
Many persons who struggle to read experience visual stress, which is defined as visual discomfort and perceptual abnormalities in printed text. According to estimates, the problem affects roughly 40% of poor readers and 20% of the general population to varied degrees.
Colored overlays can help you read faster and more accurately. They can help you read for extended periods of time without getting tired. When this happens, it's a sign that the person could benefit from Precision Tinted Lenses. A Colorimeter, a specialised piece of equipment, is used to prescribe the lenses.
Following your vision examination, the optometrist will go over the results with you and answer any questions you may have.
