Reducing the symptoms of:

  • migraine severity and duration;

  • photophobia and screen intolerance;

  • concussion and acquired brain injury (ABI) post injury vision issues;

  • sensory processing disorder and autism visual processing;

  • vestibular disorder balance problems and dizziness

  • post-stroke vision issues;

  • photosensitivity in epilepsy;

  • Tourette related tics;

  • ADHD distractibility; 

  • anxiety; and

  • symptoms of other neurological disorders where vision is affected.

Reduce medication and cost

Research into migraines, epilepsy and many personal reports have indicated that some individuals are able to reduce the medications intake to manage symptoms. This can be attributed to the use of filters that help reduce the effect of visual triggers as well as environmental modifications.


Since you may require less medication and time for rehabilitation therapies and learning strategies, you may also be able to reduce your overall expenses.

Note: while Opticalm offers assistive tools and technologies to help manage and reduce symptoms of Visual Stress, they are not meant to replace prescribed therapies or medications for your specific diagnosis.

Reduce recovery time

When Visual Stress is reduced, more energy becomes available to focus on healing, and to work on therapy and rehabilitation. The term ‘cognitive dollars’ is used to explain how there is only a certain amount of cognitive energy (dollars) that the brain can apply to solve problems throughout the day. If it spends it all trying to manage problems with the visual system (where 80% of our sensory information comes from), the daily cognitive energy bank is drained and there is less available to spend on recovery – or for some, just making it through the day. 

Visual Stress can lead to a cluster of visual, perceptual and physical symptoms that are similar to the diagnoses above. Fortunately, reducing symptoms is possible with the same solutions used to reduce Visual Stress: precision tinted lenses, coloured paper and overlays, screen tinting software and specialty lighting.
