TNO Human Factors Research Institute Publication year 1998 Abstract A side effect of the prescription of prism glasses according to the principle of Utermöhlen to improve mechanical reading skills of certain types of learning disabled children, was the alleviation of car sickness. Besides a decrease in reported symptoms after prescription of these glasses, the effect is quantified by a decrease in estimated number of emeses per year per patient. A placebo effect is unlikely as alleviation of car sickness was not the original intention of the prescription, and the symptoms return as soon as the spectacles were discontinued.
