Abstract

This paper will attempt to provide a balanced view of the current evidence concerning the use of coloured spectacle lenses. The condition in which symptoms are alleviated by coloured filters has had many names, most recently Meares–Irlen syndrome, pattern-related visual stress and Meares–Irlen syndrome/visual stress. For simplicity, in this paper it will be called visual stress.
