South Coast Optometry is proud to prescribe ChromaGen – the only FDA approved visual aid for patients with visual reading difficulties associated with dyslexia and color deficiencies, commonly known as color blindness.
ChromaGen is a patented lens technology that can be prescribed for eyeglasses or contact lenses and can easily be incorporated into an existing prescription. The lenses can be fitted to any traditional eyeglass frame and have a neutral grey appearance.
Here is how it works
The ChromaGen lenses change the wavelength of light going into both your eyes allowing the speed of the information traveling along your brain’s neurological pathways to be balanced.
If you suffer from any of the following symptoms, ChromaGen lenses are a life-changing aid that could work for you.
- words that are blurry or come in and out of focus
- words that move up and down and side to side
- words that appear to "float" on the page
- words that scrunch together or p u l l a p a r t
- double words or double sentences
Understanding Visual Dyslexia
We often hear about parents who struggle with children who have dyslexia that are told after an eye exam that their child’s vision is 20/20. They are told, “Dyslexia is not a vision problem” so they need to look elsewhere for help as their issues will not be solved with an eyeglass or contact modality.
The problem stems from the term 20/20 being commonly mistaken for vision when it truly refers to an individual’s sight. 20/20 refers to sight and not vision. 20/20, 20/30, etc., are actually measurements of a person’s ability to see a certain size object at a certain distance. Vision is the ability to understand and use the information that we see for purposeful activity. In short, visual acuity or sight measures only the smallest detail we can see; it does not represent the quality of vision to understand what we see. Your child could have perfect sight (20/20) and still have a variety of vision issues.
Dyslexia – A Vision Issue
Dyslexia is a vision issue because the child has difficulty correctly processing and understanding what they see. The vision process is quite complex. Each eye has two parallel processing systems that must be balanced and additionally, both eyes must work together for efficient reading. If these two systems are not balanced, the child will experience the common dyslexia symptoms of words blurring or doubling, words moving on the page, headaches, eyestrain and reduced reading speed and comprehension.

For people suffering from color deficiency or ‘color blindness’, ChromaGen lenses work by changing the wavelength of each color going into one or both eyes, which enhances color perception and color discrimination. Dr. Harris (inventor of ChromaGen) states “the filters alter the neurologically transmitted signals to the brain, re-synchronizing the magnocellular and parvocelluar neural pathways so that the brain receives the correctly balanced message.”
“I realized that some cars I thought were black were navy blue or dark green. As I looked around, it was as if colors popped out at me, especially orange, pink and fuchsia. I will be able to see colors I was lacking.” – Nick A., New York
