Cerium Coloured Overlays


Cerium Coloured Overlays

Cerium Coloured Overlays are used widely both in the classroom and by vision professionals in practice. Significant improvements in both reading rate and accuracy are common when the optimum overlay is prescribed.

Cerium Overlays are coloured sheets of robust transparent plastic that are placed over a page of text when reading. The overlay assessment packs are used as a screening tool to identify the benefits of working with colour.

The Cerium Premium Overlay test set includes the Wilkins Rate of Reading Test, which measures improvements in both reading speed and accuracy with the chosen optimum overlay.

What we can do?

Our Dispensing Optician, Karen, has a special interest in children's vision and can undertake an investigation of vision in relation to reading and learning.She will ask you to complete a questionnaire giving her a detailed history. The assessment then takes about an hour, during which time she will look at eye dominance, tracking, reading speed, muscle balance and colour preference.

This assessment is done in addition to the normal sight test.
