We are all individuals who see images in different ways.
And those differences can be considerable. For some of us, letters and words will seem to float or jump from the page. Others of us are not able to recognise emotions on another person's face.
Research has shown that perhaps 5% to 10% of the population see things so differently as to cause problems. In Britain alone this may represent millions of people. Everyday life becomes challenging for them: for example they can have problems with reading and writing, their balance can be affected, or they may even taste things differently.
Research opticians have discovered in recent years that the use of tinted spectacle lenses can make a substantial improvement for many people. Their lives can be changed. For children and young people this can be particularly important. Some research has even suggested that 25% of students might potentially benefit.
The answer is "yes". The key is to find the right colour for the individual person.
Finding that key is what we do. But how?
We apply sophisticated computer-based searches for the right colour — from millions of possibilities — for each child, young person or adult.
How long does it take?
Only one hour, from start to finish. And the results are available immediately.
What is the success rate? From our work so far over several years with British and overseas patients, we have achieved a good result in about 70% to 90% of cases. Some results are truly dramatic.
We establish what can be achieved for the patient with coloured lenses—rather like sunglasses - and the coloured glasses can then be ordered if required. For those who wear prescription glasses to correct short or long sightedness etc., coloured lenses are specially made to their prescription. Spectacles with plain coloured lenses can be worn with contact lenses.
WHO WE ARE
I am Evgenia Lynch LLB, FdSc, ABDO
My full name is Evgenia Kiseleva Lynch and I was born in Russia. I qualified as a lawyer and worked there in corporate law. Then I relocated to Britain and made a career change into a very different field: that of an optician.
I worked in an optician’s practice in Scotland for eight years and obtained a degree in Optics at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge, one of the top 350 institutions in the world.
Working alongside research optician Ian Jordan, I developed a great interest in the use of colours to help patients. The results which were achieved were remarkable. I saw such potential that I established a colour testing business in Moscow with my business partners and I regularly travel to Moscow to work with our Russian patients.
I am registered with the General Optical Council and am a member of the Association of British Dispensing Opticians.
We use the Orthoscopic Red Eye system, which was designed and developed by research optician Ian Jordan.
Ian Jordan is a specialist in the field and he gives lectures on the system to international audiences.
