Precision tinted lenses are created from the data we collect from the colorimetry device. The coloured lenses can be prescribed with or without a prescription. Some patients with vestibular migraines and fibromyalgia have also benefited from Cerium tinted lenses.
One of our optometrists will advise you when to wear the tinted spectacles, for instance when reading off a school board, when reading books or when performing any detailed work.
The first Intuitive colorimeter was designed in 1993 by Professor Arnold Wilkins when he was working at the Medical Research Council Applied Psychology Unit in Cambridge. He conducted research that established the existence of an underlying photophobic condition, previously under-recognised, that could impede the visual ability to read text. The symptoms of the condition were frequently confused with those of dyslexia.
