How to make your own bar reader sheet

By Mike Robinson

Self-made bar reader sheets
"These are my homemade red/blue reading bars for getting both eyes working together. Wear red/blue glasses and hold it over your book or tablet. I got the clip on red/blue glasses and assortment of colored acetate sheets on Amazon. I cut the sheets into strips and, for the smaller one, I glued them onto a clear cd case cover, just using glue at the top and bottom. For the larger one I cut a hole in the middle of a file folder, put glue all over the inside of the folder, placed the strips so they're glued top and bottom and then closed the folder to stick it all together and make it more rigid."

Illustration of the principle that underlies
the practice of bar reading. One is forced to use
both eyes while reading otherwise
parts of the text are invisible.

  1. Hello very good idea, a question must be glasses red / blue or may be red / green. To make the barcode reader I'm not sure how to do that in an image is wearing a red and a blue strip while the other image is a red strip transparent space and a blue stripe. Thanks for your help and prompt response
