The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of a new medical device on the improvement of reading skills of dyslexic patients.


Dyslexia is defined as a specific learning disability that is characterized by reading difficulties, in the absence of intellectual disability, neurological or psychiatric disorder, uncorrected sensory disturbance (sight, hearing) or an educational deficiency.

Dyslexia appears in the child from the earliest stages of learning in the form of a difficulty in mastering the learning of reading. This disorder is manifested by a generally hesitant reading, slowed down, full of errors, requiring a lot of effort for the child and may impact his reading comprehension. The dyslexia-related deficiency is of variable intensity depending on the individual; it may be accompanied by calculus disorders (dyscalculia), oral language (dysphasia), motor coordination (dyspraxia) or attention disorders with or without hyperactivity. In nearly 40% of cases, a child affected by Dys disorders presents several learning disorders.

To date, the causes of dyslexia are not yet clearly established. The wide variety of symptoms and disorders associated with dyslexia does not facilitate the identification of precise neurobiological / psycho cognitive mechanisms. There are therefore several theories: phonological, visual, temporal, cerebellar or proprioceptive auditory processing.

Recently, following work published in 2017, an anatomical cause based on Maxwell's spots could also be a cause of dyslexia.

The aim of this study is to evaluate a new medical device to compensate this probable anatomical cause.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A procedure that uses a SLIT LAMP to examine structures in the front of the EYE, such as the CONJUNCTIVA; CORNEA; IRIS; and AQUEOUS HUMOR.

A microscope with a light source that can be projected into a linear beam. It allows cross-sectional viewing of the AQUEOUS HUMOR; CONJUNCTEIVA; CORNEA; EYELIDS; IRIS; and lens (see LENS, EYE) of the eye.

Tunable liquid lasers with organic compounds (i.e., dye) which have a strong absorption band, used as the active medium. During emission, the dye has to be optically excited by another light source (e.g., another laser or flash lamp). The range of the emission wavelength may be anywhere from the ultraviolet to the near infrared (i.e., from 180 to 1100nm). These lasers are operated in continuous wave and pulsed modes. (UMDNS, 2005)

Analytical technique for studying substances present at enzyme concentrations in single cells, in situ, by measuring light absorption. Light from a tungsten strip lamp or xenon arc dispersed by a grating monochromator illuminates the optical system of a microscope. The absorbance of light is measured (in nanometers) by comparing the difference between the image of the sample and a reference image.

Technique using an instrument system for making, processing, and displaying one or more measurements on individual cells obtained from a cell suspension. Cells are usually stained with one or more fluorescent dyes specific to cell components of interest, e.g., DNA, and fluorescence of each cell is measured as it rapidly transverses the excitation beam (laser or mercury arc lamp). Fluorescence provides a quantitative measure of various biochemical and biophysical properties of the cell, as well as a basis for cell sorting. Other measurable optical parameters include light absorption and light scattering, the latter being applicable to the measurement of cell size, shape, density, granularity, and stain uptake.
