Dyslexia, a learning disorder recognized by the World Health Organization, affects approximately 6 to 8% of the French population, or on average 2 children per class. Atol les Opticiens offers the latest innovation from Abeye, the Med-Tech start-up that it has been incubating since 2018: LEXILENS® glasses, a new device to make reading easier for dyslexic people.
LEXILENS®: the first electronic reading aid glasses
These glasses are based on the discovery of two researchers in laser physics from the University of Rennes, Albert Le Floch and Guy Ropars, rewarded by the National Academy of Medicine in 2020. After 15 years of research, they implemented evidence of a link between eye, brain and certain forms of dyslexia. Their work revealed “two eyes that are too perfect”, or the absence of a dominant eye, which prevents the brain from filtering mirror images and therefore correctly distinguishing letters. With its intelligent active lenses, LEXILENS® filters the mirror images that cause reading difficulty.
The LEXILENS® device is recommended in addition to speech therapy support. Tests carried out in the laboratory and then in real conditions on more than 200 people show promising results in terms of fluency and reading comfort for a large majority of testers. Benefits: improved academic results, a taste for reading for some, increased self-confidence and more fulfilled children in a peaceful family climate. 92% of wearers of these glasses feel a change in their lives. This is one of the results of the survey* carried out among more than 350 LEXILENS® glasses wearers.
Please note: LEXILENS® does not emit waves and is therefore not harmful to the wearer’s health.
Designed and manufactured in France, the LEXILENS® device is offered for sale exclusively in Atol les Opticiens points of sale.
