coloured overlays

Coloured overlays 

Some forms of visual dyslexia can be helped with the use of tinted overlays. It is easy to test for and many people have found an immediate improvement in their reading.

  • Sophie came to see Graham after complaining that her vision was blurred in her left eye. She really enjoyed her first appointment and Graham immediately put her at ease (and made her laugh!) He diagnosed the problem and prescribed glasses and the use of a patch for an hour a day, which has proved to be the perfect solution. We noticed a marked difference within the first week - sooner than any of us expected - and by her three month check-up the improvement was more than any of us, including Graham, could have hoped for. She is already asking when we can go back again for her next check! We would heartily recommend Morgan-Owen & Coates to anyone looking for an optician. –Nicola, Sophie's mum, June 16

  • For a parent, hearing your 5 year old is going to need glasses and has a lazy eye is upsetting. However Graham ensured the situation was not a worry for me and made the whole thing into an adventure for my daughter. She is still very excited by her new glasses! Graham was wonderful. His relaxed, reassuring and caring manner made the whole experience much better than I could have hoped for. In addition, everyone thinks Faye's glasses are fabulous! Thank you so much. –Sian Mills, June 15

  • Thank you so much for the friendly, efficient and fun treatment that Penny has received from you all since last October. In 8 months, since you diagnosed her astigmatism and prescribed her glasses, Penny has gone from barely being able to read, to being able to read at a standard well over a year for her age-group! It's incredible!! She looks great in her glasses, enjoys her appointments with you, and above all, loves reading!!  Thank you so much. –Andrea and Mike Jarrett, June 14

  • As a professional artist I need to take my eye care seriously and since moving to Morgan-Owen & Coates six years ago I have received superb service and advice. My check–ups are always extremely thorough and conducted in a friendly relaxed manner with no effort made to sell me anything I don’t actually need. Thanks for all your help. –Gordon Rushmer, Feb 14

  • My glasses have made a huge difference in my life. It is much easier to see the white board in class and my tutor has noticed and commented how my work has improved. –Peter Walley, Jan 14

  • After months of neck, shoulder and headaches when working on my PC, I had an eye test with Graham and it became clear that all my discomfort was down to struggling with my spectacles. He recommended a correction suitable for my screen work and since then my posture has improved, and working on the PC has become a pleasure again!–Robert Ingram, Feb 13

  • My daughter recommended I go and see Graham at Morgan-Owen & Coates and I am so pleased I did.  He is very caring, makes sure I am happy with everything and that my frames sit comfortably - nothing is too much trouble and he didn't bat an eye when I ordered purple lenses for my sunglasses!  They also stock Ronit Furst frames which are totally amazing - I'm on my third pair.....–Shelly Rosenberg, Jan 12

  • I’ve been a patient of Morgan-Owen & Coates Opticians for 8 years and have always been extremely impressed by the professional standard of care I’ve received – not only in the thorough and personally tailored eye examinations, but also in the very helpful advice I’ve been given on a wide range of optical issues.
