Dyslexia / Specific Reading Difficulty

here to
help

If your child is consistently underachieving in the area of reading and spelling, complains of words “jumping around” or moving on the page, or has problems with concentration at school (especially with respect to literacy), then there may be grounds to wonder whether he or she has dyslexia.

the test

Although aimed primarily at children, the tests described here may also be of benefit to adults who experience symptoms of moving / flickering / shimmering text while reading (a.k.a. "visual stress").

At our Witham, Pitsea, and Corringham practices we have the facility to conduct a computer-based "Colour Screener Xpert" * Assessment. This can reveal whether benefit might be gained from the use of a Coloured Overlay or specially tinted "ReadEZ" spectacle lenses for reading etc.

more than just a sight test

A visit to the opticians begins with an appointment to see
one of the optometrists for a Standard Eye Examination.

We provide a sympathetic service to small children (including infants — we are happy to see children at any age), the elderly and those with special educational needs. We provide a Domiciliary (Home Visit) Eye Examination Service under contract to the NHS for patients who are unable to attend one of our practices without substantial assistance.

In addition to our Standard Eye Examination, we offer a number of additional services.

Great friendly staff, expert services, completely satisfied with the whole experience and it's nice not to be rushed in and out like the big chain stores. Highly recommended.
First class professional service, all the staff are very courteous and helpful. Would heartily recommend Belson & Sons to all who expect the best in expertise and care.
I have been using Belson & Sons for around 30+ years, the staff have always been polite, friendly and courteous; the opticians are very professional and thorough.
I wouldn't go anywhere else. I have been going to Belson & Sons opticians for 21 years and I would recommend them to anyone who wants to see an optician.
I have been using Belson & Sons Pitsea branch for years now and would not dream of changing. The examination is always thorough and the personal service is exceptional.
I was always made to feel welcome, and felt as if every attention was being given to the care of my eyesight, unlike my (limited) experiences with some of the national chain opticians.
