What is dyslexia?

Answer: 

Dyslexia is a reading impairment that can result from an abnormal developmental process.

While dyslexia has its core in a disruption of language processing, some believe that it may be a visual disturbance.

Some dyslexics complain that small letters appear to blur and move around when they're trying to read, leading to research being done in the field of optometry to see if there is a visual component to dyslexia.
