Dyslexia and Lexilight

Dyslexia is a medical condition that affects 8 to 10 percent of people worldwide. It makes the reading experience difficult, because when they read, they see a mirror image appearing on top of the text on the page. A dyslexic person has two dominant eyes that send two different streams of information to the brain simultaneously, creating confusion and mirror images that disturb the reading process.

Lexilight is a device that aims at bringing relief to those who suffer from dyslexia. It corrects the issue by enabling the brain to process the information as if it came from the single dominant eye, using a pulsed and modulated light that reduces the mirroring effect.

The specific light waves emitted by the LEDs in the lamp can be customized to match the vision profile of each user. The device can adjust several LED parameters, including the refresh rate, to drive one eye to take precedence over the other to reduce the mirroring effect.
