  • blurred letters or words which go out of focus,
  • letters which move or present with back to front appearance or shimmering or shaking,
  • headaches from reading,
  • words or letters which break into two and appear as double,
  • find it easier to read large, widely spaced print, than small and crowded,
  • difficulty with tracking across the page,
  • upset by glare on the page or oversensitive to bright lights.
