    Some people will probably have come across colored filters/lens - people in my family use them and I've heard them suggested for ME/CFS.

    Anyway, here's a student project I happened to come across that looks like it reviews the literature.

    Ta Dolphin. I tried looking in to the research around this stuff a while back, and wasn't sure what to make of it. Someone I know in the NHS had used it themselves, but was still unsure if it was quackery when I asked them about evidence for it's use. It always seemed a bit dodgy to me... but schools have been using it to 'help' kids with, and it seems to be in the 'mainstream'. I wonder how it ever came to be used.
