Their motto: "We help readers, of all ages, better enjoy reading with $4 colored overlays that reduce the high-contrast of white pages with black print. (Sometimes these overlays help readers overcome severe reading problems, headaches, migraines, depth perception and other visual/perceptual issues.) When you try the overlays, you'll be surprised how much more comfortable it is to read when a page is NOT stark-white . . . instead, a color your brain enoys & associates with."
