We always think of the eye for its optical properties : making the light beams focus so we can “see” clear images.
The eye anatomy plays another important role beyond optics though : its wiring impacts the processing of images in the brain. The Maxwell centroid spot is a small region of the retina of the eye and is the area with the highest “pixel density” which we use when doing activities requiring high accuracy such as reading.
These centroids, more specifically the absence of symmetry between the two centroids, enables the brain to select the “right” images before it is sent to the reading area (located in the left half brain).
Researchers discovered that when the centroids are too symmetrical, they downgrade the ability of the brain to select the right images Individuals with dyslexia have eyes that are too symmetrical, too perfect in some way, and this leads to their reading area trying to process superimposed images, an explanation for dyslexia.
Lexilens® looks like an ordinary eyewear with embedded electronics and battery. These control the active filters that enable a smoother reading with less effort.
Lexilens® filters out the parasite images and instantly makes the reading easier.
While doing so, the cognitive load once allocated to deciphering is now allocated back to comprehension. All Lexilens users confirm : text appears more clear and is instantly meaningful. This enables them to not only read with less effort but also to memorize better with strong impact on reading performance and overall self confidence.
