Making sheet music 'lower contrast', ideally purple tinted?

A friend of mine is dyslexic and enjoys performing as part of an orchestra, but she finds sheet music very hard to read as it's very high contrast. She would ideally like it to be purple tinted. Any ideas how to practically achieve this?

My friend enjoys performing in an orchestra, but is recently finding reading sheet music increasingly difficult as she finds reading black-on-white and even white-on-black very hard.
When she was tested recently it was found that lower contrast particularly a purple tint helped a lot.
In day to day reading she can use plastic sheets to achieve this, but during long pieces it makes turning pages practically impossible.
