The Intuitive Colorimeter has been a valuable addition to our practice. I use it for testing patients who suffer brain injury- particularly those with headache, photophobia and/or complaints of severe symptoms in environments with increased peripheral stimulation such as the grocery store or shopping mall.
Sometimes Colorimeter prescribed lenses are the key to providing a patient with enough symptom relief so that they can proceed successfully with their general rehabilitation therapies. The Colorimeter provides a quick easy way to prescribe filters with a specific spectral transmission.
The Colorimeter has been helpful in prescribing filters for some migraine sufferers or patients with learning related visual dysfunction. While not a cure-all, Colorimeter prescribed lenses have certainly made a major impact on improving the quality of life for many patients in our practice. The Colorimeter is another powerful tool in the rehabilitation or functional optometrists’ arsenal. I am grateful for the significant relief it allows me to provide for particular patients.
