Has helped many with reading, in particular many dyslexics who experience
pattern glare and/or fixation problems. Launched just before the millennium the
original VTM was awarded "Millennium Product Status" by the Design Council. The
device is the result of many years research by Ian Jordan, who is well known for
his pioneering work in designing equipment thatcan effectively measure and treat
visual dyslexia. The device was created in conjunction with COIL, a specialist
in optical moulding, which manufactures what Jordan believes to be the highest
quality magnifiers in the UK.

Many visual dyslexia sufferers are confused by 'pattern glare' which causes whole
blocks of text to merge and swim above the page to make reading extremely
difficult. Jordan has combated this problem by creating a device that modifies the
way one's eyes approach the print.

It sits on a page and can be easily tracked backwards and forwards across the
text. It consists of a high powered magnifying glass, with a central viewing strip
about 7mm wide. Above and below this strip are two semi-circular, transparent,
patterned areas that remove any distortion from the surrounding text. As a result, a
high proportion of visual dyslexics, together with those who have other visual
problems including: fixation difficulties or binocular instability,can read text much
more easily. The new version is available with a blue or red durable soft
grip surround and comes complete with a clip on protective cover.
