Dyslexia and convergence insufficiency

Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that mainly affects the ability to read fluently and spell words correctly. The symptoms of dyslexia and what is known as convergence insufficiency are similar. Often, these two problems occur together, and sometimes they can even be confused.

Convergence insufficiency, also known as eye coordination problems, occurs when the eyes fail to work together efficiently. Although each eye functions well on its own, they do not coordinate effectively when working together. This condition can negatively affect reading speed and concentration and may lead to eye fatigue. For individuals with dyslexia who struggle with reading, training eye coordination can prove to be beneficial.

Eye coordination can be trained

Imvi Labs, in collaboration with researchers from Karolinska Institutet, has developed a method that can help you improve your eye coordination. This method is simple and entertaining, and it can help alleviate stress on the brain, enhance your reading ability, and increase reading speed, stamina, and concentration. For individuals with dyslexia, this method can offer an opportunity to mitigate many of the problems caused by dyslexia. Although dyslexia cannot be cured, everyone can train their eye coordination.

How VR training can help you with dyslexia

Using our method, you train your eye coordination by watching streaming content of your choice.

Through our patented technology, the movie you choose to watch oscillates sideways and makes your eyes follow the same movement. This strengthens cooperation between the eyes.

In just a few weeks you can feel the difference. Faster reading speed, less eye fatigue and better concentration.

You can choose what you want to watch while exercising. Today you can watch whatever you want from the streaming services such as YouTube.

People with dyslexia or other reading and writing difficulties improve their reading and writing skills by 101% through our VR method.

What our customers say

My reading speed increased by 50%. Now when I read aloud to the children, I notice that I don't stop and go back in the text. My eyes aren't as tired after a day of work either.

My reading speed increased by 40% but, more importantly, I can now read in concentration for 40 minutes instead of 10 minutes. It makes school work so much easier.

What is dyslexia?

Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that makes it difficult to read, write and spell. It is important to note that dyslexia is not related to a person’s intelligence. Many people with dyslexia have average or above average intelligence and can be extremely creative, think in innovative ways and have unique problem-solving skills. Dyslexia is hereditary and occurs in all walks of life and cultures.

Symptoms of dyslexia

The symptoms of dyslexia can vary depending on age and access to support. In children, early signs may include delays in speech development, difficulties in learning new words, problems with rhyming or learning the alphabet, numbers and days of the week. At school age, the symptoms become more apparent and can include problems with reading aloud, slow reading speed, difficulties in understanding text being read, problems with spelling and avoidance of reading.

Diagnosis and investigation

A thorough investigation is essential to establish a correct diagnosis of dyslexia. This process should include a detailed history of the individual’s academic and family history, observations of literacy skills, and standardized literacy tests. In Sweden, there are specific guidelines and resources for conducting these investigations, both for children and adults.

Tools and strategies

There are a range of devices and strategies that can facilitate learning and daily activities for people with dyslexia. Assistive technology is becoming more and more common. Imvi Lab’s patented VR method is an example of this. Today we have trained a large number of dyslexics, all with good results.

Schools and educational institutions can adapt teaching methods and materials to meet the needs of students with dyslexia, including longer test times, the use of oral rather than written instructions, and the provision of notes.

Support and resources

Seeking support and accessing resources is important for individuals with dyslexia and their families. There are websites such as IDA which offer information, support and guidance. Schools and educational institutions also play a critical role in providing the necessary support and adaptations.
