Visual Stress Test

To help you identify whether you suffer from the effects of Visual Stress, we’ve put together a basic Visual Stress Test. While not conclusive, it should help you identify early signs of the syndrome. Read the following text:

Are you suffering from visual stress?

  • Do the letters move?
  • Are the letters blurred, fuzzy or difficult to see?
  • Is the page too bright?
  • Does it hurt your eyes to look at the page?

If you answer YES to any of these questions, check out the overlay versions below. If you see an improvement in your ability to read it, you may suffer from visual stress.
