Evidence-based solutions for migraine headaches,

brain rehabilitation, vision and learning difficulties

Visual Stress is caused by visually disturbing lights, images and patterns that trigger hyperactivity in the visual areas of the brain. This leads to physical discomfort, visual sensory processing difficulties and sensitivities that can interfere with reading, attention, coordination, general health and behaviour.  


Visual Stress is estimated to be present in approximately 20% of poor readers and 15% of the general population. Opticalm provides solutions to help manage your visual stress symptoms.
