The ReadEZ System

Approximately 20% of the population suffer discomfort when looking at a page of words. This condition is known as Meares-Irlen syndrome or Visual Stress. In many cases the discomfort can be reduced by changing the background to a certain colour. This can be achieved by placing a sheet of coloured plastic over the page (overlay) or by wearing coloured glasses.

Professor Thomson explains more:

Our mission is to provide a spectrum of products to help those with visual stress.  Our products have been developed by a leading expert in the field and are backed by years of research and experience.

At last a company that has taken the mystique out of the management of Meares-Irlen syndrome.  Good quality, good value solutions and excellent support.  Thank you.

Overlay user

I would like to extend a special thank you for your excellent support. In the past I have had to pay more than double the price for inferior overlays.

R Downing

Clip-on user

I was quoted over £300 for coloured spectacle lenses.  I bought your coloured clip-ons for under £40 and they work brilliantly.

P Stirling

Virtual Overlay user

I spend most of my day in front of a computer screen.  Using your on-line colour checker I found that it is much more comfortable if I make the background colour light blue.  I now use your Virtual Overlay App to do this and it has made a huge difference. Thank you.
