Individuals and Families
Do you or a loved one struggle with:
Attention, learning or reading difficulties?
Light-sensitivity at home, school or the office?
Headaches or migraines?
Colour Vision Deficiency (CVD)?
Opticalm can help!
Contact us for a consultation and review the wealth of information on this website. The more you understand visual stress or colour vision deficiency, the sooner you can start to do something about it.
How we help
Opticalm offers a wide range of assistive tools, technologies and services:
Visual Stress Assessment
Specialty lenses and coloured filters
Coloured overlays, paper and pens
Lenses for Colour Vision Deficiency
E Ink (ePaper) non-LCD computer monitor and tablet
Screen tinting software
Lighting solutions for home or office
While it may seem strange to think that a simple coloured item can help, once you understand that it isn’t about colour but about filtering light, it really does make sense.
Most of our clients are referred to us by their doctors, optometrist, educators or rehabilitation specialists. Many referring specialists use specific tools designed by Opticalm to identify visual stress and refer individuals who are likely to benefit from our assistive tools and assessment services. Of course, we also get many word-of-mouth referrals from clients that experienced great results with reading improvements or getting back to work.
If your optometry, health care or education specialists are not familiar with visual stress, specialty filters or the services offered by Opticalm, we encourage you to contact us. It will be our pleasure to provide you or them with information.
For more information about visual stress, they can visit eMentalHealth.ca, a non-profit initiative of the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) dedicated to improving the mental health of children, youth and families.
