Re: Adult Dyslexia

could also be a "convergence insufficiency" which i have learned about reciently, i have it actually!.

do you by any chance go on your computer alot (or anything similar, like tv?)

people are frequently labeled dyslexic or attention deficite, when they really have convergence insufficiency, which has similar symptoms (in fact, i was treated for add and on retalin for a few months, and i am also having trouble reading/writing, which is newly developed.

basically what convergence insufficieny is, is when your convergence muscles in your eyes (muscles that make your eyes focus inwards, to focus on nearby things) are a little weak, mostly due to not enough exercise (in the eyes, believe it or not) this can be fixed by doing simple eye exercises.

describe you symptoms a bit more, in detail, that might help a bit
