Description Chromagen filters were developed as an aid for color blindness, but later also as a tool to fluent reading in dyslexia. Their function is based on the principle of wavelength shift and they affect large ganglion cells of the optic nerve (magnocellular system). Filters can reduce text distortions that most of dyslexics perceive. Reading should be easier and more comfortable. Chromagen filters are available in eight color variants. Appropriate color is selected for each eye individually. The research compares the immediate effect of chromagen filters on the reading rate and number of errors of dyslexic children and the control group, which consists of children without reading problems.
