FAQ
Will my personal data and therapy results be revealed?

Your data will be stored safely and won't be revealed to the public. As long as you continue to consent to the study, the data may be used by clinical staff for research purposes.



How do I withdraw my consent?

You are free to withdraw your consent at any time. Visit the 'Patient' tab, login to your Read-Right account, click on 'My Account', in the 'Profile Information' table, check the 'Participant's Statement' to participate in Read-Right research study or uncheck to withdraw your consent.



How do I know the side of my hemianopia?

You may or may not know this. If you do, it will probably be because your optician, orthoptist or doctor has performed a visual field test on you. These vary, but for most you have to position your head at the front of the machine, look straight ahead and press a button when you see a light flash.

The visual field test on the website should be considered as a guide only. It is designed to test those parts of the visual field most important for reading. You may well need a formal test on a clinical machine if the only evidence for a visual field deficit comes from this website.



Can Read-Right therapy be used for people without hemianopia alexia but with “dyslexia”?

Dyslexia, also known as developmental dyslexia is a failure of the normal reading system to develop. In contrast, HA occurs once people have learned to read.

Although there is little reason to suppose that viewing the therapy (moving text) will do people with developmental dyslexia any harm, there is also no evidence that it will improve the reading speed of anyone who doesn’t have HA.

Although there is little reason to suppose that viewing the therapy (moving text) will do you any harm, there is also no evidence that it will improve the reading speed of anyone who doesn’t have HA.
