ReadEZ Overlays are available in 12 colours (A-L), more colours than available in any other system. The colours have been carefully chosen by a team of vision experts to provide the optimum saturation (colourfulness) and transmittance (darkness) to minimise the symptoms of Visual Stress.
The overlays themselves are made of durable acetate and come as A5 sheets making them ideal for reading pages of any size.
If you are experiencing the symptoms of Visual Stress, you are advised to have a full eye examination by an Optometrist before using overlays in order to rule out other possible causes. Many optometrists can test you for Visual Stress and recommend an optimum overlay colour.
If you have had a recent eye examination, you can use our Overlay Selector tool to see if reading is more comfortable with any specific colour. Overlays are not expensive and many people find that reading is more comfortable using an Overlay even if they have not been diagnosed with Meares-Irlen Syndrome.
Please note: Due to the difference in the colour reproduction of different monitors, the colour of the overlays may differ ever so slightly from the colours shown below.
