LEXILENS - LEXILENS are the first electronic spectacles helping dyslexics to overcome reading difficulties.


How do LEXILENS work ?

In most people, one eye is dominant over the other. You realize this because to aim with accuracy, you close one eye to keep only the dominant eye open.

Two French researchers at the University of Rennes discovered very recently that people with dyslexia usually do not have a dominant eye. Their scientific discovery received an award from the French National Medical Academy.

Both eyes transmit primary images and mirror images of the same quality to the brain. Unable to sort, the brain merges the two images. The dyslexic reader therefore sees badly detached letters, mirrored letters (like b instead of d), words that overlap, leading to a greater effort of deciphering.

LEXILENS®, the electronic spectacles neutralize the mirror image. 


How effective are LEXILENS ?

More that 2000 dyslexics purchased LEXILENS across 15 countries.

Initial tests and wearers’ feedbacks show 96% of satisfaction and recommandations.

Wearers express greater ease of reading, the letters stand out better, as well as the lines, the contrasts are also improved.

Some testify a real pleasure to read, they gained confidence and improved relations within their environment.
