I found an article on Fox News online written on September 4th 2013 at
It was stated in the article Quote “For the first time, I'm actually able to read something and focus on the letters and the words and not the space in between,” said Banks.

It sounds to me like the ChromaGen Lenses are a possible option to discuss with your doctor if you have the funds and you, your child, or a family member could benefit from them. I would definitely encourage anyone personally to seek advice from a trusted Optometrist, Ophthalmologist, or any M.D. who is a specialist in eye care, before making any decisions.
In my prior blog dated July 16th 2014 I discussed an option to test taking and textbook reading that may be an inexpensive solution. I use see through, plastic, tinted, colored dividers over the top of my page or piece of paper. It helps when I read. They can be found in most local grocery or office supply stores. They are quite inexpensive and I found them to be very usual in keeping track of my words and sentences on a page.
I believe that no matter what new product or tips you pick up on your quest for education and knowledge, it all begins with the attitude you choose. You can decide to let your learning style be a hindrance or an asset. It is all in how you perceive yourself. I hope your choice is the latter.
