Dyslexia Awareness Week 2018

Next week is Dyslexia Awareness Week (DAW)

It will take place from Monday 1st to Sunday 7th of October 2018, with World Dyslexia Awareness Day being celebrated on Thursday 4th October.

With this in mind, we thought what better opportunity for us to mention our Visual Stress Assessment Service.

If you are a teacher or learning support specialist, you will know that solving undiagnosed reading difficulties can be time-consuming and often frustrating. Especially when conventional therapies fail to yield the results you had hoped for. Maybe you are a concerned parent with a child who is struggling with their reading. It is very easy to assume that your child or young adult is simply dyslexic, but are they?

There has been much research, producing a good amount of evidence that suggests that some children, young people and even adults, may be experiencing some form of visual disturbance, caused by the way their brain processes visual information while they read.

Symptoms include;

  • Losing track while reading
  • Becoming very tired
  • Showing fear or reluctance to read

Over recent decades a form of Therapeutic Optometry known as Colorimetry has been developed to offer relief with some undiagnosed reading difficulties.

What is Visual Stress

Visual Stress is a term used to describe visual discomfort and perceptual distortions when looking at stressful patterns. Symptoms can be experienced in varying degrees from simple fatigue when reading, to an inability to look at text.

Visual stress (Meares-Irlen syndrome), coloured overlays and colorimetry.

Children and adults can both suffer from visual discomfort when reading. It is estimated that approximately 5% of the population are severely affected by Visual Stress. A further 20% to a lesser degree. Visual Stress can affect reading fluency, concentration and comprehension often causing rapid fatigue. Symptoms of  Visual Stress can cause the apparent movement of print, the appearance of rivers running through the print and headaches /eye strain.

Visual stress is found to exist in many conditions including:

  • Dyslexia
  • Dyspraxia
  • Photosensitive Migraine
  • Photosensitive Epilepsy
  • Autism
  • ADHD
  • Head Injuries
  • Multiple Sclerosis

Assessment for the relief of visual stress

This is a three-step process and begins with a thorough eye test and vision assessment to check for possible causes of headaches or difficulties with reading.

Our optometrist will carry out a series of tests to check for any visual or eye health problems.  This can help to rule out any other causes of symptoms such as needing spectacles, or a binocular vision (eye muscle) problem.  

Our optometrist will also look at the eye in detail to make sure it is healthy.  This part is essential even if a recent eye examination has been carried out elsewhere as it contains tests that may have not been performed as part of the standard eye examination.

The overlay assessment.

This appointment is usually carried out by a dispensing optician or optometrist.  We have a range of overlays (coloured perspex sheets) to try. Each sheet is tried in turn to determine which gives the most comfortable and effective rate of reading.  We measure the reading speed with and without the overlays in place to see if any benefit is obtained.

overlays and visual stress assessment at Allegro Optical Meltham Holmfirth HuddersfieldIf it is felt appropriate to check for Visual Stress then the first part of the assessment will take approximately 30 minutes and in part consists of testing with optimum coloured overlays which, when placed over a page of text, can often lead to improved reading rate and accuracy.

Once an overlay is prescribed we advise using it both in the classroom or workplace and at home during the ensuing weeks. If improvements are noticed and sustained a further test using the Intuitive Colorimeter® is advised, when the optimal colour may be identified.

Colorimetry assessment

Developed in partnership with the University of Essex and Professor Arnold Wilkins, the colourimeter embodies cutting-edge technology.  Provide an innovative digital solution allowing the parameters of hue, saturation and brightness to be explored systematically.

The Colorimetry assessment will take approximately one hour, it is carried out by a fully qualified optician or optometrist. You will be asked to look into the Intuitive Colorimeter and shown different colour filters to determine which colour reduces disturbances in the text. Young children may wish to bring a favourite book along with them.

On completion of the assessment, the Optician or Optometrist will interpret the results and spend time with you to discuss the next course of action. If a precision tint is found to help, we will then advise you on the suitable frame selection to complement the coloured lenses and take the necessary measurements for a pair of spectacles to be produced.

Visual stress is NOT the same as dyslexia but it is more common in those who are dyslexic. People who fail to read because of visual stress are often mis-diagnosed as dyslexic. For this reason, it is important that the existence of visual stress is identified at an early stage. Once visual stress has been alleviated, any remaining problems are much easier to solve.

Visual Stress and Migraine

A migraine is a particularly acute form of a headache, and sufferers often experience unbearable pain during an attack. A significant proportion of migraines are induced by visual stress.

For anyone with visual stress-related migraines, relief can sometimes be achieved by looking at particular colours. Lights and visual patterns can cause incredibly painful headaches and can result in a condition called photophobia. Migraines can become so stressful and unbearable that sufferers will do anything to get away from whatever bright lights and coloured patterns induce the symptoms.

The good news for Huddersfield based sufferers is that Allegro Optical has the expertise and ability to provide painless relief for visual stress-related migraines. We use Cerium optical tinted lenses to reduce the symptoms of visual stress. Some of our migraine clients wear spectacles with lens tints calibrated by intuitive colourimetry. Generally, our customers who have used these glasses report a near-total drop in the number and frequency of migraines.

If you or your child would like a visual stress assessment, a full eye examination, including extra tests to check the binocular vision status of the eyes is the first stage of a three-state investigation.

Dedicated music teacher can now see a bright future thanks to the Musician’s Optician

Music Teacher can now see the music, and so much more thanks to the Musician’s Optician

Music Teacher Gary Collins visited Allegro Optical Optician in Meltham on his doctor’s advice. He was experiencing severe back and neck pain, particularly after playing for any length of time. Gary admitted his vision wasn’t great and Sightreading was becoming a problem.  He was currently using off the shelf reading glasses, but they weren’t ideal. Gary admitted the back pain and neck pain was having a significant impact on his daily life. In fact, he said it was beginning to affect his state of mind. Gary said the pain and discomfort were really getting him down.  It was having a severe impact on his working and social life. We carried out a full sight test and found Gary to have a pronounced astigmatism and following a referral, for further investigation, Keratoconus was diagnosed.

Specialist eye care for musicians and performers at Allegro Optical Opticians in Meltham

Keratoconus and posture

Keratoconus is a progressive eye disease in which the normally round cornea thins and gradually develops into a cone-like shape. This cone-shaped cornea deflects light as it enters the eye on its way to the light-sensitive retina, causing distorted and blurred vision.  Keratoconus is the most common dystrophy of the cornea and it affects around one person in a thousand. However, some reports indicate a prevalence as high as 1 in 500 individuals.  is typically diagnosed in the mid to late teens and reaches its most severe state in the twenties and thirties, but in Gary’s case, early diagnosis had been missed as he hadn’t had an eye test for some 15 years.

A condition such as Keratoconus can cause the musician a great many problems. Particularly when seeing the music and for any concentrated prolonged work. Gary had developed a habit of tilting his head, known as ocular torticollis, to try to gain some clarity. This, however, was leading to severe neck and back pain.

Keratoconus contact lenses RGP and specialist eye care from Alllegro Optical, the musicians optician in Meltham

Uncorrected or undercorrected eye disorders, such as Keratoconus and astigmatism, can cause a pronounced head tilt as the sufferer tries fixating the eye. This induced head tilt offsets the refractive error giving better clarity but can cause a myriad of postural problems, particularly among musicians.

The usual course of treatment for patients with mild Keratoconus may initially be corrected with glasses or soft contact lenses, however, the vast majority of patients need rigid contact lenses for adequate vision correction and Gary was no exception.

Solution

We fitted Gary with Rigid Rose K2 keratoconus contact lenses, which are a common correction for patients such as Gary. These lenses have a multi-spherical posterior design with aberration control aspheric optics distributed across the back and front surface of the lenses. However, this still wasn’t perfect for Gary who when teaching was displaying the early signs of presbyopia creeping in.

We measured all the required working distances Gary uses. As a result, we dispensed hybrid spectacle lenses into a full frame for when he is teaching and playing. This gives Gary a clear working distance from 30 centimetres to 6 meters, with a much wider field of view than any varifocals or occupational lenses. The new spectacle lenses allow Gary to see up to three sheets of music on his stand and give him a clear view of his classroom. Gary also has a pair of spectacles to correct his vision when he isn’t wearing his contact lenses and giving his cornea a rest, as he also suffers from dry eye disease, which isn’t unusual with Keratoconus.

Gary collected his new glasses and contact lenses and said “The new contact lenses and both pairs of glasses supplied by you are amazing and they have changed my life. My back and neck pain has reduced significantly and my quality of life has improved immensely. Now I can drive, teach and read music. I can see around the classroom with ease and my confidence and self-esteem have improved greatly. I now can't imagine living my life without my contact lenses and glasses. Thank You so much.”

Gary collected his new glasses and contact lenses and said; The new contact lenses and both pairs of glasses supplied by you are amazing and they have changed my life. My back and neck pain has reduced significantly and my quality of life has improved immensely.  Now I can drive, teach and read music. I can see around the classroom with ease and my confidence and self-esteem have improved greatly. I now can’t imagine living my life without my contact lenses and glasses. Thank You so much.

Why Allegro Optical?

Many Musicians who experience focusing problems are unaware that there is a solution to the problem. Many like Gary carry on adapting to their worsening eye condition by altering their posture. Often they begin to suffer pain and discomfort. Over time, slumped or hunched posture can create a lag between the eyes seeing an object and the brain interpreting the image of the object, and the body responding to the object. In fact, poor posture caused by deteriorating vision can result in many health issues. Including slowed circulation, shallow breathing, and a further reduction in vision quality.

Squinting, leaning forward, or tilting of the head into an unnatural position to see more clearly can create muscle tightness in the shoulders, neck, and head. Over time, this maladjustment can decrease blood flow causing numbness and muscle strength issues.

At Allegro Optical we understand the many visual requirements placed on different musicians. With an understanding of the playing and seating positions of professional and amateur musicians, we can prescribe and dispense a variety of optical corrections to suit their needs. We create a spectacle or contact lens design especially for the client to provide a perfect optical solution. As a result, the musicians’ working and playing life can easily be improved. In many cases it can also be extended due to the improvement that this solution provides.

Conclusion

This case study has illustrated the variety of dispensing challenges that practitioners may face when a musician presents in practice and the individual needs required to be taken into account.

This National Eye Health Week your eye health matters

Looking after your eyes

This year’s National Eye Health Week, is set to take place next week from the 24th to 30th September 2018. Just like other awareness campaigns, this campaign aims to educate people on the importance of eye health.  Explaining why we should all have a regular sight test.

People often fear losing their vision but are unsure of their eye care needs. National Eye Health Week aims to change this by educating people. Having said that, here are some of the interesting facts all about eye health and eyes.

  • About 2 million people live with severe sight loss in the UK, significantly impacting their daily activities. In over 50% of these cases, sight loss is avoidable.
  • A sight test can easily detect the early signs of eye conditions including glaucoma, which can be treated very quickly.
  • During a  sight test, other health conditions can be detected including diabetes and high blood pressure.
  • Eating well can help maintain healthy eyes. Also avoiding smoking and wearing eye protection during bright sunlight helps to maintain good eye health.
  • The importance of eyesight towards general overall wellbeing, independence and quality of life is too important to be ignored.

Eye care charities across the UK, health professionals and support organisations are all joining together this week.  They are all working together to promote the importance of eye health and the need for regular tests.

Seeing a little further

Vision problems aside, eye tests can detect a large range of serious diseases. With over 100 years of combined experience, our Optometrists Claire, Sara and Steve know a thing or two about eye health. Our Dispensing Opticians Sheryl, Julia and Abigayle are experts in looking after your eyes health. The team are supporting and promoting National Eye Health Week to educate the people of Meltham and the surrounding areas of Holmfirth, Huddersfield and Saddleworth about the need to care for their eyes.

During an eye test at Allegro Optical, we take a retinal photograph of each eye. We do this for everyone, where possible, at no extra charge. In addition to retinal photography, we can now provide Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) imaging, a non-invasive test which uses light waves to take cross-section and 3D pictures of your entire eye.

This state-of-the-art 3D technology takes 128 individual high-resolution scans of the back of the eye. It creates a detailed picture of either the optic nerve or the macula (central vision area). Every distinctive layer of the retina can be seen using these scans.

OCT 3D eye scans at Allegro Optical Opticians in Meltham Holmfirth Huddersfield Saddleworth

A new dimension in eyecare

Allegro Optical is the first opticians in Meltham to acquire this fantastic new type of high-tech equipment. Allowing the early detection of glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and other eye diseases. Studies show that  Optical Coherence Tomography 3d eye scans may detect eye diseases earlier than conventional tests.

People are surprised when we tell them that 80% of blindness in the world is caused by what we call ‘back-of-the-eye’ diseases. Diseases such as Glaucoma, Diabetic retinopathy and AMD. But the good news is that 75% of blindness is preventable with regular check-ups and early detection.

Thanks to our new 3D eye scanner we can provide a complete assessment of the retina. This automatically compares it to a database of normal eyes to determine if there are any abnormal findings.  If and when the exam shows even a suspicious finding, the customer is referred to an eye specialist for further investigation and treatment, if necessary.

Early diagnosis

The trick with these diseases is to catch them as early as possible, because often by the time any symptoms are noticed, such as blurry or spotted vision, decrease in peripheral vision, etc., the disease has already progressed into an advanced and irreversible stage. Our 3D eye scan can detect signs 

OCT 3D eye scans at Allegro Optical Opticians in Meltham Holmfirth Huddersfield Saddleworth

of these diseases in their early symptomless stages when treatment can be more effective in stopping the progression of the disease.

A common misconception is that loss of vision or blindness only affects the elderly. But some of these diseases progress very slowly over years, starting at a relatively young age, so eye screening is important for everyone.

Another advantage of the 3D eye scan is that it records and saves the exam results so that when a customer comes back for his periodical follow up, the 3d eye scan automatically compares the results to the previous results to see if there has been any change in the retina since the last exam.

So don’t delay and book your comprehensive eye test today. Call 01484 907090 for your own peace of mind.

Trombonist Keeps His Position!

When Adrian’s vision began to slide

Championship Bass Trombonist Adrian Bird has reached a certain age. It’s as certain as death and taxes and it comes to us all in time. But it can be devastating for musicians. Adrian has significant astigmatism and has worn glasses for most of his life. It wasn’t until he developed presbyopia that his eyesight really began to interfere with is music making. Presbyopia is a condition which affects our eye’s ability to focus at close working distances. It is caused by the reduction in the elasticity of the eye’s crystalline lenses. Presbyopia can mean that for many musicians like Adrian, focusing on a music stand while also being able to see the conductor can be tricky. Adrian Bird of Leyland band gets his glasses from Allegro Optical the musicians optician in Meltham An accomplished musician, Adrian has quite a sound, certainly one worthy of his seat in a championship section band. Adrian joined Leyland Band in March 2017 having previously played for Marsden Band, Wingates Band, Diggle Band and Carlton Main Frickley Colliery Band. He studied music at both Huddersfield and Salford University. Making music is something that Adrian loves and it is part of who he is. So you can imagine how despondent he feels when seeing the music interferes with his playing.

A Busy Man

When not playing Bass Trombone with Leyland Band Adrian runs a successful recruitment agency, The Apprentice Finder, based in Brighouse. Like many entrepreneurs, he spends a fair amount of time using a computer, although he was now finding this easier to do without his spectacles. But it was the music stand which was causing him problems as it was neither in focus with his glasses on or off. Adrian, who lives in Marsden visited Allegro Optical Opticians and carried out a full sight test and eye examination. Following the consultation, we settled on a progressive design lens to allow Adrian to drive, use a computer, play the trombone and read all in one pair of glasses. Adrian also opted for a photochromic coating which has proved particularly useful when playing with the band outside.

A Clear Conclusion

Allegro Optical caught up with Adrian at the British Open Brass Band Championship at Symphony Hall in Birmingham, where Leyland Band were competing in the event. Leyland finished in a very respectable 6th place having been drawn last (19th) to play. We took the opportunity to ask Adrian how he was getting along with his new spectacles. He said “The challenge as I get older is having the ability to be able to read the music and see the conductor clearly. The spectacles from Allegro Opticians allow me to do that so I can concentrate on music-making.” Musicians often present an Optometrist or Dispensing optician with many challenges regarding working and visual field. Here at Allegro Optical Opticians, as musicians ourselves, we are able to ask the right questions and interpret the answer. By using our optical and musical skills and knowledge we are able to address and resolve the many visual problems older musicians encounter. As a specialist Optician Allegro Optical can produce individual solutions to suit a musician’s needs, which are not available elsewhere. At Allegro Optical we approach the problem from the musician’s perspective. We have built up a considerable following as a result. We are very passionate about helping to correct the specific visual needs of musicians and performers. With an extensive range of corrective lenses, we provide a wide range of tailor-made solutions and services. Including advice on optical corrections, on-site vision assessments, and specialist optical technology for those affected by reduced visual clarity. We have a wide-ranging client base, from professional classical musicians to members of well-known brass bands and many keen amateurs. Thanks to our unique solutions we have helped music teachers, performers, TV presenters and many keen amateur musicians of all genres.

The Musician’s optician goes on the road

It’s been a busy week on the road for Allegro Optical, Meltham’s musician’s optician.

We have had a very busy and varied start to September. On Tuesday last week, we took Allegro on the road, firstly to The Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester when we attended the Music Mark North West area conference. We took our roadshow to the event to help educate music teachers about the very unique visual needs of musicians and performers and how Allegro Optical can help. We were overwhelmed by the response we received, with teachers and educators from across the region wanting to know more. Allegro Optical Opticians from Meltham takes their musicians roadshow to The Royal Northern College of music with Stephen Tighe Gerrard Booth of Oldham music services

Vision and Music

Poor or reduced vision among musicians can lead to poor posture which impacts on performance and in turn on performance confidence. This frequently leads to musicians retiring early. As one musician said recently  “Uncertainty with your vision is just as serious as a mechanical failure with your instrument. That moment of indecision increases performance pressure, leads to mistakes and stops you from giving your best”.

Decreasing visual acuity can lead to poor posture which increases the risk of the musician going on to develop from musculoskeletal disorders. This is particularly noticeable among over the over 40 age group although we do see younger performers with recently diagnosed degenerative eye conditions who fear for the loss of a career or hobby they love.

The British Open

The next port of call was the British Brass Band Open Championships in Symphony Hall Birmingham. Time to meet lots of new faces and catch up with some old ones. We made plenty of new contacts and Abi seemed to enjoy meeting the bandsmen and women.

Steve our MD caught up with some old mates from the brass band world who were very kind in their remarks in relation to his health scare last year. He also got a lovely surprise visit from his old mate Tommy Burns from his army days. Over 36 years ago Tommy was a Clarinetist. He served with Steve in the Regimental Band of the 5th Royal Inniskilling Dragoon Guards.  It was lovely for me to meet him and hear the two of them share some memories and reminiscences of their youth.

Congratulations

We send our congratulations to the Cory Band on a well-deserved win. Also to our old friend Vincent Bearpark, Principal Cornet with  Valaisia Brass Band.

Angelo Bearpark needed help with sight reading

Congratulations for winning the Stanley Wainwright Memorial Trophy. (His father is a client of ours and a friend and originates from Saddleworth before he moved to Switzerland). Local trombonist and friend of Allegro Optical, Adrian Bird from Marsden. Adrian plays with Leyland Band where he sits in the seat our Steve occupied in the 80’s on Bass Trombone. They came in with a very respectable 6th place. So we are delighted to send them all our congratulations on a job well done.

Is your eye sight up to spec? Don’t risk your licence for the sake of an eye test and glasses.

Keep your eyesight up to spec with a regular eye test.

Having talked among ourselves about this issue only yesterday the headlines in the “Daily Telegraph” have today spurred us on to produce this blog. We have noticed that some of our older clients are unaware of the need to ensure that their eyesight is up to par when driving. We know that some are frightened that they may lose their licence and in turn their independence. That fear can be allayed, with good advice from Allegro Optical. Usually, spectacles can correct poor vision, and with frames starting at just £10 and lenses from £40 there really is very little to fear both in terms of cost and impact on lifestyle.

Older drivers are encouraged to have regular eye tests or risk losing their licence

Recently, an 87-year-old driver failed an eye test after narrowly missing a police car when he turned the wrong way onto a main road. Officers had just left the A3 near at Ripley, in Surrey, when a Honda Jazz pulled out of a junction, forcing their vehicle to swerve out of the way. Surrey police posted dash-cam footage of the near-miss on Sunday. The incident occurred as police launched a crackdown on drivers with defective eyesight.

Snellern chart professional eye tests at Allegro Optical opticians in Meltham Huddersfield and Holmfirth

The Legal Requirements:-

In good daylight, you must be able to read a vehicle number plate from a distance of 20 metres (or from a distance of 20.5 metres for old style number plates).

If you want to do your own number plate test, when walking down a street or in a car park, 20 metres is about 5 car lengths.

You must also have an adequate field of vision and a visual acuity of at least decimal 0.5 (6/12) on the Snellen scale (with glasses or contact lenses, if necessary), using both eyes together or, one eye only if the driver only has sight in one eye.

If you need glasses or contact lenses to drive, you must wear them at all times when driving (see Rule 92 of the Highway Code). It is an offence not to do so, and may invalidate your motor insurance. It is a good idea to keep a spare set of glasses in the glove compartment.

For further info, see this dedicated website http://www.olderdrivers.org.uk/the-law/eyesight/

Eyesight Tests

The best way to make sure that you meet the minimum eyesight standard for driving is to have an eyesight test at your opticians, every two years, or more often if the optician advises.

Older drivers are encouraged to have regular eye tests or risk losing their licence

You are entitled to a free eye test if you are 60 years or over, or have been diagnosed with diabetes or glaucoma or have been advised by an ophthalmologist that you are at risk of glaucoma. If you are 40 years or over, and have a mother, father, brother, sister, son or daughter who has been diagnosed with glaucoma, you are also entitled to a free NHS sight test. You can also receive free eye tests if you receive certain social security benefits.

Any condition that affects both eyes (and the remaining eye if you only have one eye), except long and short-sightedness and colour blindness, should be reported to the DVLA (or the DVA in Northern Ireland). This does not necessarily mean you would lose your licence – an assessment of your eyesight will be made.

Brake joins forces with police to rid roads of defective driver vision get an eye yest and make sure your vision is up to spec

Eyesight can deteriorate gradually over time, and it can be difficult to realise it has fallen below the minimum standard. For instance, as we grow older our eyes become less able to react quickly to changes in light and we start to have difficulty with colours and contrasts in poor light. Between the ages of 15 and 65 years the time it takes to recover from glare increases from 2 to 9 seconds. This could be one reason why some people find driving at night more difficult.

New Crackdown

Many police forces have now cracked down on drivers with defective eyesight, with motorists being asked to read a number plate from 20m away. Anyone who fails will have their driving licence immediately revoked. Data from these tests will be used to improve understanding of the extent of poor driver vision. These moves are supported by road safety charity Brake and by Allegro Optical.

Brake has teamed up with police forces in Thames Valley, Hampshire and West Midlands to run a month-long campaign to get a better insight into driver vision. The forces will be revoking the licenses of those who don’t pass the 20m number plate check. During September, anyone stopped by Road Policing Officers in the above areas will be required to take the 20m number plate test.  Those who fail will have their licence immediately revoked. Data collected from each test and will then be used to gain an improved understanding of the extent of poor driver eyesight on our roads, which is thought to be vastly underreported in Government statistics.

Play safe and have an eye test

So, time to make sure your eyesight is up to spec!. Make an appointment today with Allegro Optical Ltd and don’t fall foul of the law. While the new routine roadside testing is initially being trailed in three southern counties as we speak we are sure it won’t be long before it comes into force nationwide.

We will help you to continue driving legally.
